Mushroom-Manchego Quesadilla Recipe

Fast & Easy Dinner: Mushroom-Manchego Quesadillas

For years, I was one of those people who avoided mushroom quesadillas. I would often see them on menus or buffet tables, but mushrooms just didn't seem like an acceptable filling for quesadillas. Red peppers? Yes. Onions? Of course! But mushrooms? Nope. Until one day when I was starving and grabbed a mushroom quesadilla not realizing what it was. I was shocked to learn how good it was!


Mushrooms do work in a quesadilla, and when paired with the correct cheese (like manchego) and filling (think roasted jalapeños and fresh tomatillo salsa), they can be absolutely divine. Dollop with a little bit of sour cream and serve with a cold Mexican beer and I'm almost in heaven. To give mushroom quesadillas a try — you won't be disappointed, I promise! —
