Quesadillas make for an excellent meal, no matter what time of day — especially when made with sautéed mushrooms with onions, garlic and dried thyme and placed into tortillas sprinkled with Sargento® Shredded 4 Cheese Mexican - Fine Cut and garnished with sour cream, guacamole or your favorite salsa.

  • 3 Tbsp. butter or margarine, divided
  • 1/2 cup chopped sweet or yellow onion
  • 1-1/2 cups sliced mushrooms
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 tsp. dried thyme
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 8 (7-inch) flour tortillas
  • 1-1/2 cups (6oz.) Sargento® Shredded 4 Cheese Mexican - Fine Cut, divided
  • Salsa, sour cream, chopped cilantro, diced avocado or guacamole (optional)
  1. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in large skillet over medium heat. Add onion; cook 3 minutes. Add mushrooms, garlic, thyme, salt and pepper; cook 5 minutes or until liquid evaporates.
  2. Melt remaining butter; brush one side of 4 tortillas. Arrange tortillas, buttered side down, on large baking sheet; top with 1 cup cheese. Arrange mushroom mixture over cheese; press lightly. Brush remaining butter over tops of tortillas.
  3. Bake in preheated 450°F oven 6 minutes or until tortilla tops are golden brown. Top quesadillas with remaining cheese; bake 1 minute or until quesadillas are golden brown and cheese is melted. Cut into wedges; serve with toppings as desired.
