    Used different ingredients. i didn't add garlic (didn't have any) and used olive oil, not veget. oil  -  28 Jan 2009


    Thought this would be perfect for the veggie missus, quick and easy. Cooking quesadillas is always easy enough and can be quite fun but never thought about mushrooms and spinach until seeing this. After the first attempt I changed the order of preparation. I cooked the mixture first, then put the tortillas in the oven so I didn't over/under cook anything. Doing that, the mixture will heat up when doing the final stage. My first attempt had me waiting for the mushrooms to fully cook while my tortillas with cheese was out the oven, cooling down and starting to go a tad hard. While I enjoyed them, the missus thought it was missing something. We aren't too big into soured cream and guacamole, but maybe putting a bit of salsa in with the mixture at the final stage may spice it up a tad.  -  19 Jul 2017
