Ingredients

1/4 cup unsalted butter

2 1/2 tsp. chili powder
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 tsp. oregano
8 oz. mushrooms, sliced
1 cup chicken, cooked and shredded
2/3 cup onion, finely chopped
1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
1 1/2 cup Monterey jack cheese shredded
2 tbsp. olive oil
16 corn tortillas, 5 1/2 inch


Methods/steps

Melt the butter in a large skillet over med-high heat. Add chili powder, garlic and oregano and sauté about one minute. Add mushrooms and sauté until tender, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and mix in the chicken, onion and cilantro. Cool for 10 minutes, and then mix in the cheese. Lightly brush oil on one side of 8 of the tortillas and place them oil side down on a baking sheet. Divide chicken mixture among tortillas, spreading to even thickness. Top with the remaining 8 tortillas and brush tops with oil. Grill quesadillas until heated through and golden brown, about 3 minutes per side; cut into wedges to serve.

For a Mexican fiesta that's both healthy and hearty, enjoy these smart choices.
