What mushrooms are best in a quesadilla?
There are a variety of mushrooms that can be used to make quesadillas- the best type will depend on your personal preference. Some popular options include portobello mushrooms, shiitake mushrooms, and cremini mushrooms. These mushrooms have a rich, savory flavor that pairs well with the cheese in a quesadilla. For a unique twist, you could also try using more exotic mushrooms, such as enoki mushrooms or oyster mushrooms. Experiment with different types of mushrooms to find the combination that you like best.
How to Make Mushroom Quesadillas
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic and mushrooms, reduce the heat to medium-low, and cook until the mushrooms are tender about 5-8 minutes. Stir in balsamic vinegar.
Add spinach to the skillet in two batches, cooking until wilted and the liquid has evaporated—season with salt and pepper.
Brush one side of each tortilla with olive oil. Place three tortillas, oiled side down, on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Top each tortilla with a layer of mozzarella cheese, crumbled goat cheese, sauteed spinach and mushrooms, and another layer of goat and mozzarella cheese. Place the remaining three tortillas on top, oiled side up.
Bake in the oven until the cheese is melted and the tortillas are golden, flipping once (about 8-10 minutes). Cut into quarters and serve.
What to Serve with Mushroom Quesadillas
Some options to consider include the following:
- Guacamole or salsa: These flavorful dips add freshness and a bit of spice to the quesadillas.
- Refried beans: These beans provide a creamy, protein-rich side dish that pairs well with the savory flavors of the quesadillas.
- Salad: A simple green salad with a light vinaigrette dressing would be a refreshing accompaniment to the quesadillas.
- Roasted vegetables: Roasted vegetables such as bell peppers, zucchini, or sweet potatoes add a crunchy and colorful element to the meal.
- Rice: A side of rice, such as Mexican-style cilantro lime rice or Spanish-style saffron rice, can help to soak up any excess sauce and add some additional flavor to the dish.

- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
- Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add the olive oil. Once oil is warm stir in the minced garlic and mushrooms and reduce heat to medium-low. Sprinkle with a small pinch of salt. Continue to cook mushrooms until soft and tender, about 5-8 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the balsamic vinegar and stir again.
- Add the spinach to the same skillet in two batches; allowing the first batch to wilt slightly before adding the second batch. Continue to cook until spinach is completely wilted and liquid has evaporated (soggy quesadillas are no good). Season with salt and pepper to taste.
- Brush one side of the tortillas using the remaining tablespoon of olive oil. Place 3 tortillas, oiled side down, on a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Layer each tortilla with a thin layer of mozzarella cheese, a sprinkle of crumbled goat cheese, sauteed spinach and mushroom, and a final layer of goat cheese and mozzarella cheese. Top with the remaining 3 tortillas, oiled side up, and place in the oven until cheese is melted and tortillas are golden, flipping once (approximately 8-10 minutes).
- Cut into quarters and serve.
