  • 8 Vermont Tortilla Company's turmeric tortillas
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups shredded Mexican blend cheese
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh cilantro, chopped (for garnish)

Homemade Hot Sauce:

  • 4 fresh jalapeño peppers, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup white vinegar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice


  1. Prepare the Homemade Hot Sauce:
    • In a medium saucepan, combine the chopped jalapeños, minced garlic, white vinegar, water, sugar, and salt. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
    • Reduce the heat and let it simmer for about 10 minutes, until the jalapeños are soft.
    • Remove from heat and let it cool slightly. Transfer the mixture to a blender and blend until smooth. Add lime juice and blend again. Pour into a jar and let it cool completely before using.
  2. Sauté the Vegetables:
    • In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the sliced onions and cook until they begin to caramelize, about 5 minutes.
    • Add the sliced mushrooms, ground cumin, smoked paprika, salt, and pepper. Cook for another 5 minutes, until the mushrooms are tender and the flavors are well combined. Remove from heat and set aside.
  3. Assemble the Quesadillas:
    • Place one Vermont Tortilla Company's turmeric tortilla on a flat surface. Sprinkle a generous amount of the shredded Mexican blend cheese over half of the tortilla.
    • Add a spoonful of the sautéed onions and mushrooms on top of the cheese. Fold the tortilla in half to create a half-moon shape.
    • Repeat with the remaining tortillas and filling.
  4. Cook the Quesadillas:
    • Heat a non-stick skillet or griddle over medium heat. Cook each quesadilla for 2-3 minutes on each side, until the tortillas are golden brown and the cheese is melted.
    • Remove from heat and let them cool slightly before cutting into wedges.
  5. Serve:
    • Arrange the quesadilla wedges on a serving platter. Drizzle with the homemade hot sauce and garnish with fresh cilantro. Serve with extra hot sauce on the side for those who like it extra spicy.
