Ready In:




  • Heat a skillet to medium heat and fry onion in a bit of oil or butter. When onion is translucent, add mushrooms and cook until mushrooms have released their juice and the onion is a little browned, about 5 minutes or so. Remove and reserve in a bowl when done.
  • Using the same skillet, turn the heat down to medium-low: butter one side of a tortilla and place the buttered side down on the skillet, add some onion/mushroom mix and shredded cheddar cheese. Place another tortilla on top, but with the buttered side facing towards you. Cook for a couple minutes, until cheese starts to melt and the bottom tortilla is lightly browned. Flip and repeat. Remove from skillet and repeat with remaining ingredients.
  • Cut in quarters and serve. It's good on it's own, or with typical condiments like sour cream and salsa.

  1. Now this was good and simple. I used Monterey Jack Cheese and put some salsa in with it and it came out really good. My hubby had a smart idea to put some sausage in there and make a little breakfast wrap out of it. I'm gonna have to try that. Thanks for posting.
  2. What a pleasant surprise...this was really good...I made only one for the two of us for a little snack...cooks up quick...thanks for posting it...made for Fall PAC 2012
  3. Very yummy and simple to make! I make cheese quesadillas all the time for my kids, but this recipe makes it a little more interesting for the grownups. I used a combination of colby jack and cheddar. I think next time I'll add some shredded leftover grilled chicken for a heartier meal. Thanks for posting! This was made for Fall PAC '09.


Ever since I can remember I've enjoyed cooking. I would say that I am adventurous in the kitchen and like to try new dishes and ingredients. I am lucky to live in an area that promotes local farmers and local foods. One of my favorite seasons is summer because of all the farmers markets and u-pick farms. As my name suggests, I am a junkie to this site, it's been a great way to try new recipes and learn new things about cooking. <img src="">
