Southwestern Quesadillas

I remeber eating a quesadilla like this in the town I grew up in.  They gave you BBQ sauce to dip it in, and I’ve been dipping quesadillas in that ever since.  See my previous blog post to find a recipe for homemade gaucamole which goes perfect with these.

Ingredient List:

1 tbsp olive oil

1 white onion sliced thinly

2 jalapeños de-seeded and sliced thinly

1 package of sliced baby bella mushrooms

1 ear of corn cooked and cut off cob
