Creamy Mushroom Quesadillas

Serves 4

30 minutes or fewer

Serve these hearty mushroom-filled quesadillas with a prepared black bean–and-corn salsa on the side.
  • 1 Tbs. vegetable oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped (2 cups)
  • 12 oz. white mushrooms, sliced (3 cups)
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • 3 oz. reduced-fat cream cheese, softened
  • ½ cup grated sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 4 8-inch flour tortillas

1. Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat. Add onion, and sauté 5 minutes. Stir in mushrooms and cumin, and season with salt and pepper, if desired. Cover, and cook 5 to 7 minutes, or until mushrooms have released their juices. Uncover, and cook 3 to 5 minutes 
more, or until mushroom juices have evaporated. Remove pan from heat, 
and stir in cream cheese and Cheddar.

2. Spread 1/2 cup of mushroom mixture over one half of each tortilla, leaving 
1/2-inch border around outer edges. 
Fold over tortillas to enclose filling 
and form half-moon shapes.

3. Coat large skillet with cooking spray, and heat over medium heat. Cook quesadillas 2 to 3 minutes each, turning once, or until both sides are light brown and filling is hot and melted.

Yum, shrooms smell so good while cooking. Used peppered jack cheese instead of the cheddar,to give a kick and the nice melting of jack properties work well.
