Simple&Delicious: Smoked Gouda Mushroom Quesadillas

These quesadillas are perfect for my fellow vegetarians (or just cheese & mushroom lovers). Also, you can make ten of them at once, so they’re an easy dish to make for a party or any get-together!

1 brown onion
2 bell peppers (color doesn't matter)
1 tbsp olive oil
4 tbsp butter
16 ounces sliced fresh white mushrooms
1¼ cup shredded gouda
10 flour tortillas
Toppings: sour cream, cilantro, basil, etc.

1. Slice the onion and peppers into thin strips, and heat the olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Add the onions and sautee for 3-5 minutes, and then add the peppers and sautee for 5 minutes  (until soft). Move to a bowl.

2. With same skillet, add 1½ tablespoons butter and melt over medium low heat. Add the mushrooms and sautee for 5-8 minutes and move to bowl with peppers and onions.

3. For each quesadilla, melt ½ tablespoon butter in the skillet and layer these ingredients directly in the pan: 1 tortilla, 2 tablespoons cheese, ⅓ cup pepper mushroom mixture, 2 tablespoons cheese, 1 tortilla.   Press the quesadilla together with the back of a spatula to help it stick and carefully flip it over in the skillet.

4. Let the quesadilla brown for another 2-3 minutes on the other side, making sure it turns golden and the cheese has melted.  Remove and cut each quesadilla into wedges. Top ’em with whatever your heart desires!
