HELLOOO! It feels like I haven't seen you in years! Or roughly one month. We are SO sorry, but Conor and I moved! Jam and Tron came too, how ever they were no help in the whole process, in fact they slowed us down by sitting in every single box they could find. Anyways, we are back now and this place is starting to feel like home. I didn't think I would have a hard time adjusting but I guess I was pretty comfortable in our old kitchen. We still need a few things like a dining table, and chairs. We have no chairs. Fully stocked kitchen though! I got teased quite a bit because about 90% of the boxes that we moved had KITCHEN scribbled on them with sharpie. Oh wellllllll!
These quesadillas were the second or third dinner I made, and I thought they were great and super easy! You can switch out mushrooms for zucchini or throw in black beans and fresh jalapeño if you'd like. Usually we'd go for tacos before quesadillas but for some reason I couldn't get quesadillas out of my head! And I'm glad because Jam got his spinach for the day and we had a delicious dinner. :)
small red onion; chopped small
3 garlic cloves; minced
small package of baby portabella caps, wiped with a damp paper towel and thinly sliced
1 bell pepper; diced
pinch of cayenne pepper
a package of fresh baby spinach
3 or 4 burrito size tortillas
1 1/2-2 cups shredded monterey jack cheese
Heat a medium size skillet with 1 tablespoon of oil. Once heated, add onion and garlic, let cook till fragrant and then add in your sliced mushrooms and bell pepper. Sauté together for a few minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Next add in baby spinach and carefully stir it in. It will quickly shrink down into a teeny pile of spinach and you'll be all like; "Where did all my spinach go?" Magical spinach. Add a pinch of cayenne, or however much you'd like!
Now, pour the veggie mix into a bowl and wipe out your skillet. Return to stove top and keep on medium-low heat. Add a teaspoon or so of oil and lay tortilla flat in there. Evenly sprinkle cheese over the entire tortilla, next spoon about a quarter your veggie mix onto one half of the tortilla. Once your cheese is melty, carefully slip a spatula under the cheese only side of the tortilla and fold it in half. Slide onto a plate and slice! Repeat with the rest of your filling. Serve with salsa. Adapted from The Kitchn Cookbook !
