Crisp and cheesy, these Mexican-style snacks from field editor Jeri Dobrowski of Beach, North Dakota are fun and flavorful. "We hosted a family reunion one spring and made a fiesta dinner. Everyone loved these quesadillas," notes Jeri.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound fresh mushrooms, chopped
  • 2 to 3 jalapeno peppers, seeded and chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh cilantro
  • Vegetable oil
  • 8 flour tortillas (7 inches)
  • 2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • Salsa and guacamole, optional

Directions

  1. In a large skillet, saute mushrooms and jalapenos in olive oil until tender and liquid is nearly evaporated. Add cilantro; cook and stir for 1 minute. Remove from the heat.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in a large skillet; add one tortilla. Top with 1/2 cup cheese, 1/3 cup mushroom mixture and another tortilla. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side or until lightly browned. Repeat with remaining tortillas, cheese and mushroom mixture, adding more oil as needed. Serve with salsa and guacamole if desired.
