  • Twist and remove the stem from the mushroom. Slice thinly.
  • Chop the onions finely.
  • Chop the red chili too, de-seeding if you want to reduce heat.
  • Heat olive oil in a non-stick pan.
  • Add the onions and saute till softened and translucent.
  • Add the sliced mushrooms and stir to mix together with the onion.
  • Once mixed well, leave the mushrooms and onion undisturbed on low-medium heat for 2 minutes.
  • After two minutes you will see moisture from the mushrooms.
  • Now stir fry for another 2 minutes, till the onions turn light golden in color and the mushrooms are considerably reduced. (No crisping of the onions.
  • Add the chopped coriander and allow to cook down briefly.
  • Next, add the baked beans and chilli. Cook for  a minute more.
  • Cook till the beans are heated through and lightly mashed into the sautéed ingredients.
  • Remove the pan from heat.
  • Place a grill pan on heat now and lightly grease with olive oil.
  • Place one tortilla at a time.
  • Place a fourth (¼th) of the filling over one half of the tortilla and spread gently.
  • Sprinkle the chopped or grated cheese evenly over the top.
  • By now, the bottom side of the tortilla must have developed nice grill marks. (Avoid high heat to prevent burning of the tortilla).
  • Fold the tortilla over the filling to make a half circle.
  • Press gently to seal the quesadilla with the melting cheese.
  • Don’t press too hard that the filling oozes out.
  • Once the cheese has melted, flip the quesadilla and toast the other side.
  • Toast till the outside in nice and crisp, without burning. (It should sound crispy upon tapping with your fingernail.)
  • Cut each quesadilla into 3 wedges and serve hot and crisp!

  • If you do not have a grill pan, you can use a regular non stick pan, you just won’t get those lovely grill marks. Still good.
  • Don’t like Mushroom? Try mixed bell peppers, diced or Spinach as well.
