MUSHROOM QUESADILLAS

1 lb fresh mushrooms, chopped
2 or 3 jalapeno peppers, seeded & chopped
2 tbsp olive or canola oil
1/4 cup minced cilantro
8 flour tortillas
2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
Salsa, if desired

Heat the olive or canola oil in a large skillet; saute the mushrooms and jalapeno peppers until they are tender most of the liquid is evaporated.  Add the cilantro and cook, stirring, for about a minute.  Remove skillet from the heat.

Heat another tablespoon canola or olive oil in another large skillet and add one tortilla.  Top with a half cup of the cheese, a third cup of the mushroom-pepper mixture and top with another tortilla.  Cook 2 to 3 minutes per side until lightly browned.  Repeat process until you have used all the ingredients.  Add addition oil as needed.

Serve quesadillas with salsa, guacamole, and/or sour cream, if desired.
