Barbecue Mushroom Quesadilla

August 19, 2009

Hot. That is the one word to describe this meal. I tried my hand at another recipe to use up my never ending supply of adobe chili. Quesadilla is the perfect lunch because it is light and you can make so many different varieties, from meat to veggie fillings paired with different types of cheese. These quesadillas have an irresistibly tangy sweet and spicy filling. This is not your traditional quesadilla, these mushroom quesadillas have a touch of chipotle chili pepper to add extra heat. They also make great appetizers. Make it a meal by serving these with your favorite salsa on top and a cup of black bean soup topped with chopped avocado.

Barbecue Mushroom Quesadilla

Makes 2 servings

1/4 cup prepared barbecue sauce
1/2 tablespoon cider vinegar
1/2 chipotle chile in adobo sauce, minced, or 1/4 teaspoon ground chipotle pepper
10 cremini mushroom, sliced
1/2 medium onion, finely diced
4  whole-wheat tortillas
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese

1. Combine barbecue sauce, vinegar and chipotle in a medium bowl.
2. In a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, add mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes. Add onion and cook, stirring, until the onion and mushrooms are beginning to brown, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer the vegetables to the bowl with the barbecue sauce; stir to combine. Wipe out the pan.
3. Place 2 tortillas on a grill surface. Spread about 1/2 cup of cheese on each tortilla along with the filling
4. Once heated through, remove from pan and place on a separate plate. Place 2 more tortillas on the grill, top with remaining cheese and let it melt, 3 to 4 minutes. Place the tortilla on top of the other tortilla and transfer to a cutting board. Cut each quesadilla into wedges and serve.
