I’ve all the time beloved Mexican meals (read: an excuse to douse meals in salsa) and my meals senses will all the time steer me within the direction of a Mexican restaurant while it’s that superb time to do my favourite factor of all time that's referred to as Go Out to Eat. Chips and salsa, enchiladas, chilaquiles, tostadas, and carnitas – extra extra more.
1 yellow onion
2 bell peppers (I used red and yellow)
1 tablespoon olive oil
4 tablespoons butter, divided
16 ounces contemporary sliced white mushrooms
1 1/4 cup shredded cheese (obvi, smoked gouda is my fave)
10 flour tortillas
sour cream and cilantro and one thing else for topping
Prep the peppers: Slice the onion and peppers into thin strips. Heat the olive oil in a huge nonstick skillet over medium extreme heat; upload the onions and saute for 3-5 minutes or till soft. Add the peppers and saute for 5 minutes till smooth and roasty-looking on the outside. Transfer to a bowl.
Prep the mushrooms: Wipe the skillet with a paper towel and return to the stove. Add 1 1/2 tablespoons butter and melt over medium low heat. Add the mushrooms and saute for 5-8 minutes or till golden brown. Toss within the bowl with the peppers and onions.
Assemble and cook: Wipe the skillet with a paper towel (again) and return to the stove. For each one quesadilla, melt 1/2 tablespoon butter within the skillet and layer those meals straight within the pan: 1 tortilla, 2 tablespoons cheese, 1/3 cup pepper mushroom mixture, 2 tablespoons cheese, 1 tortilla. By the time you’ve layered them, the backside will doubtless be getting a bit of golden brown. Press the quesadilla collectively with the again of a spatula to assist it stick and intently flip it over within the skillet. I typically cling my hand on the ideal tortilla as I flip it to hold the filling from falling out. Let the quesadilla brown for one other 2-3 minutes on the special side, simply sufficient to turn golden brown and melt the cheese. Remove and cut into wedges (and repeat for the special quesadillas). Top with sour cream, cilantro or one thing else you like!

On the Mexican meals spectrum, I can’t say my tastes are tremendous delicate or sophisticated. I food-thrive at equally the absolutely genuine stage and the overly Texified level. The freshest, spiciest Mexican meals will, with out a doubt, make my coronary center soar, but there's simply one thing so high-quality about a predictably cheesy, golden brown quesadilla that makes me cross WHEEEEE! Slash takes me again to 2005 and the snack bar in my school dorm building. Ruh roh.
Is there's one thing authentically Mexican food-esquely about a really easy tacky quesadilla? Better question: does it matter?
Quesa to the dilla.

Something about overly extreme sharing of Buzzfeed Animal listicles and never being capable to get any “real work” done. So at lunch time we reconvene to consume lunch collectively and share simply a number of listicles with each one special earlier than parting methods again to our special ranges of the house.
