Halloween is less than a week away! If you’re throwing a Halloween get-together or wondering what to feed the kids before they start trick-or-treating, you’re going to love today’s recipe, which we’ve covered before. Just in case you missed it, this easy to prepare quesadilla dinner is perfect for a Halloween dinner as it serves up to four people and it includes cheese, chicken, and those oh so important vegetables. Let’s take a look at the ingredients.
- A cup of sharp, shredded cheddar
- A cup of shredded Monterey Jack cheese
- A cup of cooked, shredded chicken
- Two tablespoons of divided, unsalted butter
- Eight flour tortillas
- Eight ounces of sliced mushrooms
- Salt and ground pepper for taste
- Half a teaspoon of minced garlic
- A cup of chopped spinach
Start by mixing the cheeses together in a small bowl. Take a skillet and heat two teaspoons of butter with a cover over medium heat. After the butter melts, put in the mushrooms and sauté for eight minutes or so. After the mushrooms have stopped liquid release once softening, ensure they’ve browned a tad. Add the garlic and stir everything for thirty seconds or so prior to adding the salt and pepper seasoned spinach. Sauté for an additional two minutes until the spinach has wilted, grab a plate, and set aside the mushrooms and veggies.
Over medium heat, grab a skillet and add half a teaspoon of butter. Place the tortilla in the pan and cook it for about thirty seconds before you flip it. Using the cheese you combined, sprinkle a pair of tablespoons over half of the quesadilla. Sprinkle a few tablespoons of the sautéed veggie mix and chicken on top of the cheese. Top the mixture with an additional two tablespoons of shredded cheese. Follow by flipping the bare half of the tortilla over the filling and sauté for about two minutes, making sure the pan is covered. Using a spatula, flip over the tortilla until it’s become golden brown and the cheese has melted.
After about a minute, remove the tortilla before splitting it into wedges. You’re ready to serve!
