If you’ve been following along, you already know that we are huge Tex-Mex fans. Maybe that’s what happens when you’ve lived in Texas for 25 years! I guess we should consider ourselves TEXAN now, instead of Midwesterners.

Y’all!

There are always Tex-Mex ingredients in my pantry/refrigerator. Jalapeño peppers are a staple, as well as fire-roasted tomatoes, HOT Rotel, chipotle peppers, and pepper jack cheese. I always have tortillas of some kind (flour, corn, crunchy shells, etc.) in both the pantry AND my freezer, because you just never know.

So recently, after having a calorie-laden weekend, I whipped up these healthy breakfast quesadillas.

Here’s what you need.

  • veggies – onions, green bell pepper, jalapeño peppers, and mushrooms
  • eggs and a big splash of half and half
  • flatbread
  • cheese plus toppings

I used my panini press to give these Veggie Omelette Quesadillas those nice grill marks. But you could use a regular skillet too.

Let’s talk about mushrooms.

  • While they are not a replacement for meat nutritionally, mushrooms do pack a punch for only 15 calories in a cup.
  • They have a “meaty” texture with a satisfying “umami” flavor. (Umami is a taste category, along with sweet, sour, salt, and bitter.)
  • If looking to replace meat, make sure you include a good source of protein along with the mushrooms. In these quesadillas, for instance, the eggs are the main protein, while the mushrooms make you feel like you are eating meat.

I almost always have mushrooms on my grocery list. They give so much flavor to many of my recipes.

Enjoy!
