    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven 350°F
    2. 2
      Preheat a large skillet over high heat with 3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil.
    3. 3
      Add the mushrooms and sauté until golden. Add onion, garlic, jalapeno, salt and black pepper, and saute until softened and slightly caramelized.
    4. 4
      While the veggies are cooking, make the dipping sauce:.
    5. 5
      In a food processor, puree avocado, 1 cup cilantro, lime juice, sour cream and hot sauce. Salt to taste. Pour into a serving bowl and set aside.
    6. 6
      Over an open flame of a gas burner or a hot grill, lightly char each side of all 14 tortillas and reserve on a plate. I don't have a gas burner so place in my grill pan.
    7. 7
      In a small bowl, add the beans and mix in remaining 1/2 cup chopped cilantro, salt and ground black pepper, and reserve.
    8. 8
      Once the veggies are done, add them to the food processor bowl the dipping sauce was pureed inches Add the cheese and process to a slightly chunky paste.
    9. 9
      On a clean work surface, lay 6 tortillas out and spread the cheese mixture on 3 of them. On the other 3, spread refried beans. Stack them up, alternating one cheese tortilla, then one bean tortilla, topping with a plain tortilla, so you have a 7-layer stack. Repeat with the remaining tortillas, alternating the filling the same way as before and topping with a plain tortilla.
    10. 10
      Preheat a skillet over medium low heat with a tablespoon of olive oil and place one stack into the skillet. Cook until brown on each side, about 3 minutes. When the first 7-layer stack is done, pop it into the oven to stay warm while you brown the other.
    11. 11
      To serve, gently cut each Mile-High Quesadilla into wedges using a serrated knife, and serve with the avocado dipping sauce alongside. Enjoy!

      This is pretty easy and very good. I skipped putting the grill marks on but did everything else as directed. This isn't as spicy as we would like, even with the jalapenos, so next time I will add in some Pepper Jack cheese to it, but that is the only change I will make. I thank you for another great Mexican dish that pleased my "Mexican wanna-be" son. Made for Rookie Recipe Tag ~Summer 2013~.
