How to make Veg Taco Mexicana or Cheesy Potato Mushroom Quesadilla?
I first made tortillas and then started the filling. You can check my recipe on HOMEMADE TORTILLAS here. If not, use store-bought tortillas or any flatbread of your preference.
In a pan on medium heat, add butter. Once the butter has melted, add onion and saute till translucent.
Add finely chopped mushrooms and saute till it's cooked through. Add salt, curry powder, and switch off the flame.
In a bowl, add mashed potatoes and sauteed ingredients from above. Mix well and keep this aside.
How to fill a quesadilla?
Take one tortilla at a time. Spread 1 teaspoon of chili sauce and pizza sauce as shown in the video. Add cheese as desired on one side of the tortilla, followed by a thick layer of potato mushroom mixture and some more cheese. Fold over the other side of the tortilla. Check video for more details
How to cook quesadilla?
In a pan on medium heat, add oil and place the tortilla. When it becomes golden on the underside and cheese has melted, flip and cook it on another side. You may drizzle oil if needed.
Repeat the process for the remaining mixture and tortilla. Serve hot and enjoy.
Because I serve this especially to my kids, I have not added chile powder to the potato mixture. You are free to add it along with curry powder.
You can be very flexible with the type of spices you add.
Also, feel free to add bell pepper or capsicum, corn, black beans, or spinach while preparing the filling.
