Mushroom-corn quesadilla ....

My kids fell in love with quesadillas the first time they had it. They love it with chicken stuffing and have never said no whenever offered. Taking advantage of their liking I started making different kinds of quesadillas... a lot of veggies stuffed versions. They love them a lot and enjoy them at home and also when packed for school

Quesadillas don't have to have just the perfect mexican style stuffing. Come up with your own and surprise your family. It's easy to make and pleases everyone so I love these once in a while for a simple change from our regular menu

Prepare your favorite filling with your choicest veggies/chicken and layer them on tortillas.  Top it with some salsa and cheese and heat them up on the griddle till the cheese is melted and the outside had a slight crunch to it. That's it ... you can serve a lovely meal in just no time   

Serves... 3 ppl
Serve option... Hot
This is what u'll need...

Tortillas - 3
Green Bell Pepper - 1
Onion - 1 large
Mushrooms - 12-15 nos
Spinach - 1 cup
Sweet corn - 1/2 cob
Tomato salsa - 3 tbspn
Mexican Cheese blend - 1/2 cup
Butter - 1 tbspn
Oil - 1 tbspn
Pepper - to taste
Salt to taste

Here is the stir...
  • Add a tablespoon of butter into a frying pan along with a tablespoon of oil
  • Slice mushrooms thin and toss them into the pan
  • Saute until the mushroom turns brown and loses all the moisture. Remove the sauteed mushrooms into a bowl and keep it aside
  • To the same pan add sliced onions. Saute till they turn a little soft and start to brown. Add half a teaspoon of sugar and saute for a couple of minutes

  • Remove the sauteed onions into the same bowls where you have put the mushrooms
  • Add thinly sliced green pepper/capsicum to the pan and toss it till its slightly sauteed but still holds a little bite to it

  • Add the mushrooms and onions back into the pan and give it a quick stir
  • Season it with salt and pepper as per your taste and keep it aside

  • To the same pan add a cup of chopped spinach and toss it just it till it wilts
  • When assembling the quesadillas place required number of tortillas on a clean kitchen surface. We sometimes use store bought tortillas but most of the time we use whole wheat chapatis
  • Add the prepared stuffing on one half of the tortilla/chapatis 

  • Top it with a little sauteed spinach. My kids are not a big fan of spinach so I add just a little for them
  • Add a little cooked sweet corn on top of the stuffing. Follow it with tomato salsa as per your taste 

  • Cover the stuffing with cheese as per your liking. Go liberal or just add a little ... just as you wish
  • Fold the tortilla carefully so that it looks like a semi circle. Give it a gentle press to even down the stuffing
  • Place them on a skillet with medium high heat. Cook on one side and then cook on the other for a few more seconds till the cheese is all melted and the tortilla turns a little crisp

  • Remove them onto a plate and cut them into halves using a pizza cutter

  • Serve with salsa / sour cream / fresh guacamole or all three :)
  • Enjoy hot and have a great meal with your family

                                                        • Use your imagination to include different veggies in the stuffing
                                                        • Go easy or use just a little of cheese and salsa to suit your taste
                                                        • Cook on medium flame to get a little crunch on the tortilla and also to get the cheese completely melted

                                                          Nimmi I made this yesterday for dinner and everybody liked it. I did not have tortillas so used chapathi. But they came out very good. Anu said she wants it again next week. Thanks to you that she liked it so much
