Quesadilla- Mushroom and Cheese


Quesadilla (pron: kay-sah-DEE-yah) – is made of a flour or corn tortilla, filled with cheese and/or vegetable and meat. This dish originated in Mexico (ME hi co- like the Spanish say it). A quesadilla is made with a tortilla which is filled with cheese and/ or other ingredients like as avocado, meat, vegetable. The filled tortilla is warmed until the cheese is melted. One can toast, grill or even fry the quesadilla.



I prepared this recipe using leftover chappatis, it’s a quick fix meal with a few ingredients. Toasting the tortilla gives it a nice crunch on the outside.



Chapatti (Indian Flatbread) – 2 nos.

Mushroom; sliced- 2 cups

Rosemary; fresh

Mint leaves; fresh  a handful

Parsley; fresh

Smoked Paprika- ¾ tsp.

Red hot Dutch cheese- 15gms

Olive oil- a tablespoon

Sea salt- to taste


  • In a skillet, heat a tablespoon of olive oil.
  • Saute mushrooms in the skillet.
  • Stir in the paprika.
  • Take off the heat and season with salt.
  • Put half the filling and the cheese on the tortilla, and fold it half.
  • Grill the tortilla until the cheese is melted.
  • Serve hot with salsa and sour cream or a simple fresh side salad.
