Fast & Easy Dinner: Barbecue Portobello Quesadillas

Fast & Easy Dinner: Barbecue Portobello Quesadillas

With their meaty texture and wide availability, mushrooms are often a go-to ingredient in vegetarian cooking. However, as with chicken, it can be easy to get stuck in a rut cooking the same boring mushroom dishes.

Not true with this recipe: it takes chunks of portobello mushrooms and sautes them with onions until soft and tender. These veggies are mixed with a spicy chipotle barbecue sauce before being folded into a tortilla. For extra heat, use pepper jack cheese instead of Monterey jack. Get the recipe when you

Barbecue Portobello Quesadillas


  1. 1/2 cup prepared barbecue sauce
  2. 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  3. 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  4. 1 chipotle chile in adobo sauce, minced, or 1/4 teaspoon ground chipotle pepper
  5. 1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons canola oil, divided
  6. 1 pound portobello mushroom caps (about 5 medium), gills removed, diced
  7. 1 medium onion, finely diced
  8. 4 8- to 10-inch whole-wheat tortillas
  9. 3/4 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese


  1. Combine barbecue sauce, tomato paste, vinegar and chipotle in a medium bowl.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes.
  3. 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.
  4. Place tortillas on a work surface. Spread 3 tablespoons cheese on half of each tortilla and top with one-fourth (about 1/2 cup) of the filling. Fold tortillas in half, pressing gently to flatten.
  5. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in the pan over medium heat. Add 2 quesadillas and cook, turning once, until golden on both sides, 3 to 4 minutes total. Transfer to a cutting board and tent with foil to keep warm. Repeat with the remaining 1 teaspoon oil and quesadillas. Cut each quesadilla into wedges and serve.

Serves 4.
