EwE - Chicken and Mushroom Quesadillas - Cinco de Mayo Fiesta
Tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo, so Peggy has chosen the seasonal theme of Cinco de Mayo Fiesta for this week's Eating with Ellie.
I decided to make Chicken and Mushroom Quesadillas from So Easy - because they were so easy! There was a traditional Mexican stew in another of my books, but it called for ingredients that I would find hard to obtain (hominy, tomatillos).
I was a bit worried that Chicken and Mushroom would be a little bland, but it is far from it - Ellie spices things up with cumin, chilli and oregano, so the end result is anything but bland. I also highly recommend investing in the salsa and sour cream for the side. I bought them thinking that they went into the quesadillas, and was miffed to learn that they were sides. However, they really made the quesadillas delicious.
