Garlicky Mushroom Quesadillas

Print a PDF of this recipe here.

2 T extra virgin olive oil
12 oz cremini or button mushrooms, trimmed and thickly sliced
4 medium garlic cloves
minced freshly ground pepper
8 8-inch flour tortillas
5 oz cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese, shredded

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add the mushrooms and 1/2 tsp salt and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned lightly, about 7 minutes. Add the garlic and pepper to taste and cook until aromatic, about 1 minute. Set the mushroom mixture aside. Lay 4 tortillas flat on a work surface. Sprinkle the cheese over the tortillas, leaving a 1/2-inch border around the edge of each tortilla. Divide the mushroom mixture evenly among the tortillas. Top with remaining 4 tortillas. Heat a medium skillet over medium heat. Add the first quesadilla and cook, turning once, until the tortillas are golden brown and the cheese has melted, about 2 minutes. Transfer the quesadilla to a large plate and repeat with the remaining quesadillas. Cut each quesadilla into quarters. Serve immediately. I served them with a dollop of sour cream for dipping.
