5-ingredient mushroom quesadillas with spicy sour cream

Based on 16 ratings

"This is a super basic recipe that can be amped up to your taste or enjoyed as is with salsa, guacamole, sliced avocado, or pickled onions on the side. For more flavor in the quesadillas themselves, saute the mushrooms with thinly sliced scallion (or onion) and sliced garlic or even spices like ground cumin, smoked paprika, or chili flakes for more flavor. We opted for cheddar cheese, but you could use a mix of shredded cheeses. If you don’t like heat or spice, you can add some lime juice and salt to the sour cream instead!"

Remove to a cutting board and repeat.
