  • 1 cup shredded monterey jack cheese
  • 1 cup shredded pepper jack cheese
  • 4-5 large tortillas
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  3. Heat another tablespoon of olive oil and cook the mushrooms and peppers until slightly tender with some charred marks.
  4. In a slightly greased pie pan, place a tortilla on the bottom. Sprinkle with some of the monterey jack cheese, green peppers, mushrooms, and chicken. Top with some of the pepper jack cheese. Repeat this step until you have 3 or 4 layers. Top the whole quesadilla pie with a buttered tortilla.
  5. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove foil and bake for an additional 10 minutes so that the top of the pie becomes a golden brown.
  6. The pickled salsa
  7. Mix and combine all ingredients. Let set for 30 minutes. Drain and use as a condiment.
