This is always requested when all "the boys" come over for a game. You can make the filling ahead of time and just warm up before putting it in the tortillas. I serve this with sour cream, salsa and Zaar posted "Wholly Guacomole". Hope you enjoy!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Add a tad of butter to a fry pan and add onions and mushrooms.
  2. When all the water that was released from the mushrooms has evaporated, add the cooked chicken, salsa, green chiles and drained and rinsed beans. In case you are wondering, why rinse the beans? There is so much flavor packed into those little guys from soaking in the soup broth and you don't want a soggy tortilla. Anyhow, simmer for about 5 minutes.
  3. Lightly butter one side of the tortilla and place in frypan (medium-low), add just enough cheese for the filling to stick to. Add the warm filling and top with more cheese. Top with another tortilla that has been lightly buttered on the side facing up. When cheese has melted on the bottom, carefully flip.
  4. Remove to plate when the other side has melted. I use a pizza roller to cut into 4 wedges.

This is a great quesadilla! I scaled the recipe down to make 1 quesadilla. I didn't have the green chilies I thought I had, so just minced some green pepper and sauted it with the mushrooms. I enjoyed the flavor and texture of the black beans in this. Served it with a dollop of sour cream for dipping and just loved it - thanks for sharing! Made for Spring PAC 2009
