RECIPE: Sherri’s BBQ Portabello Quesadillas

INGREDIENTS 

  • 1 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • ½ cup barbecue sauce (Sweet Baby Ray’s)
  • 1 Tbsp tomato paste (Glen Muir)
  • 1 Tbsp cider vinegar (Bragg’s Apple Cide Vinegar)
  • 1 chipotle chile in adobo sauce, minced, or ¼ teaspoon ground chipotle pepper (Chipotle chiles in adobo sauce are smoked jalapeños packed in a flavorful sauce. Look for the small cans with the Mexican foods in large supermarkets)
  • 1 Tbsp plus 2 teaspoons canola oil, divided
  • 1 pound portobello mushroom caps, (about 5 medium), gills removed, diced
  • 1 medium onion, finely diced
  • 4 8” -10” whole wheat tortillas (Guerrero tortillas)
  • ¾ cup shredded vegan cheddar cheese (Parmela Creamery) vegan cashew nut cheese
  • to taste: Cappy’s Dry Rub All Purpose Seasoning (salt free)
  • to taste: Cappy’s Dry Rub All Purpose Seasoning (spicy)
  • 1 tsp organic cumin
  • 1 tsp garlic powder

GARNISH

  • 1/2 avocado, cubed for garnish
  • 2 Tbsp vegan sour cream (Tofutti Sour Cream)
  • 1 Roma tomato, cubed
  • 2 Tbsp fresh cilantro, roughly chopped

DIRECTIONS

  1. Combine barbecue sauce, tomato paste, vinegar and chipotle in a medium bowl.
  2. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat.
  3. Add mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes.
  4. Add onion and cook, stirring, until the onion and mushrooms are beginning to brown, 5 to 7 minutes.
  5. Then add the barbecue sauce and combine.
  6. Slightly heat the tortillas in a skillet.
  7. Place tortillas on a work surface. Spread 3 tablespoons cheese on half of each tortilla and top with one-fourth (about ½ cup) of the filling.
  8. Fold tortillas in half, pressing gently to flatten.
  9. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in the pan over medium heat. Add 2 quesadillas and cook, turning once, until golden on both sides, 3 to 4 minutes total.
  10. Transfer to a cutting board and tent with foil to keep warm. Repeat with the remaining 1 teaspoon oil and quesadillas. Cut each quesadilla into wedges and serve.
