Sautéed cremini mushrooms and crumbled chorizo are the filling for these simple quesadillas with melted Oaxaca, Asadero, Quesillo, or Monterey jack cheese.

Instructions

  1. 1Add the chorizo to a frying pan over medium heat. Cook about 10 minutes, breaking up the meat into small pieces. Add the mushrooms, mix with the chorizo, and continue cooking for another 5 minutes, until the mushrooms are soft and the juices reduced.
  2. 2Using a spatula, scrape the chorizo-mushroom filling into a bowl. Carefully wipe out any remaining bits and turn the heat to medium low.
  3. 3Add a corn tortilla to pan, top with 1/4 of the cheese and 1/4 of the chorizo-mushroom filling.
  4. 4Fold the tortilla in half and let cook for about 2 minutes.
  5. 5Flip and cook another 2 to 3 minutes.
