From the Test Kitchen

In these crispy quesadillas, mild monterey jack cheese delightfully melts around a rich filling of tender mushrooms and onion—sautéed in chipotle chile paste (a specialty condiment made from dried, smoked jalapeños) for a kick of heat. In traditional style, we’re serving them with a topping of zesty guacamole.

Prepare the ingredients
1 Prepare the ingredients

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Quarter the zucchini lengthwise, then cut crosswise into 1-inch pieces. Thinly slice the mushrooms; place in a bowl. Halve, peel, and thinly slice the onion; add to the bowl of sliced mushrooms. Using a zester or the small side of a box grater, finely grate the lime to get 2 teaspoons. Quarter the lime. Roughly chop the peppers. In a bowl, combine the guacamole, lime zest, and the juice of 2 lime wedges. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

2 Cook the zucchini

In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the zucchini pieces in an even layer; season with salt and pepper. Cook, without stirring, 4 to 5 minutes, or until browned. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until softened. Transfer to a large bowl and cover with foil to keep warm. Wipe out the pan.

In the same pan, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced mushrooms and onion; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 5 to 6 minutes, or until lightly browned and slightly softened. Add 2 tablespoons of water (carefully, as the liquid may splatter) and as much of the chile paste as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until thoroughly combined and the water has cooked off. Turn off the heat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

Rinse and wipe out the pan used to cook the vegetables. In the same pan, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil and heat on medium until hot. Add the quesadillas. Cook 2 to 4 minutes per side, or until golden brown and the cheese is melted. Transfer to a cutting board and immediately season with salt. Carefully halve each cooked quesadilla.
