Wild Mushroom Quesadillas

Quesadillas are a favorite in our house, but up until now we have only fixed the traditional chicken or cheese quesadillas. I’m a mushroom lover, so when we spotted this recipe for Wild Mushroom Quesadillas, I thought it would be delicious, a perfect meatless meal and also fit in perfectly with our Mexican Recipes that we have been sharing for Cinco de Mayo.

Pretty much any combination of mushrooms will work in these Quesadillas, we used fresh shitake and cremini. The recipe also suggested oyster mushrooms. There is only 1 jalapeno pepper and not a lot of spicy seasoning, so although they are a Mexican recipe, they really are not spicy at all.

Serve the Mushroom Quesadillas with Homemade Pico de Gallo, Salsa Verde or Rice.
