A healthy choice for cheesy eating! If you wish to lower the fat further, you could use all fat-free cheese, but it doesn't melt as well.

- 1⁄2 cup kraft free shredded fat-free cheddar cheese
- 2 large portabella mushroom caps
- 4 fresh garlic cloves

- 1 pinch cayenne pepper (optional)
- olive oil flavored cooking spray
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
- Cut portabello mushrooms into slices about 1/4" thick.
- Heavily spray large baking sheet with olive oil cooking spray.
- Spread mushrooms in single layer on sheet; place garlic on there also.
- Bake in 450 degree oven for about 30 minutes, or until roasted and tender.
- Lightly spray baking sheet.
- Place tortillas on baking sheet.
- Remove skin from garlic; mash garlic on tortilla with fork, spread around.

- Chop mushroom into pieces and divide among tortillas.
- Mix together cheeses in a bowl; put approximately 1/4 cup of cheese blend on each tortilla.

I couldn't believe how delicious this was, especially for being low in fat. I am now thinking of substituting portabella mushrooms for other recipes since it fills you up, gives a delicious flavor, yet is healthy. Very easy to make too.
Great idea for Portobellos, I had never oven roasted them before. I used dry oregano, and added the cayenne for a little kick.
These were absolutely delicious! I had the six inch tortillas and wanted to make 4 tortillas. I did not have enough portobella mushrooms, so I filled in with a small can of mushrooms. I drained them and baked them along with portobellos for the last 15 minutes. I baked my tortillas whole and sliced them in half to serve. I served them with diced tomatoes and sour cream. They were great!. Thanks Sue L!
