Total Time: 25 minutes


  • 4 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 large red bell peppers diced
  • 12 oz portabello mushrooms chopped
  • 2 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce
  • juice of ½ lime
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • ¼ cup cilantro leaves
  • 3 flour tortillas toasted (approx. 10 inches)
  • 10 oz of green enchilada sauce
  • 2 cups of pepper jack cheese shredded
  • 1 cup of queso fresco
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional Toppings:
  • ¼ cup thinly sliced red onion
  • cilantro for garnish
  • sliced avocado
  • diced tomatoes
  • Mexican crema


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a large sauté on medium high heat add in 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil. Once oil is hot, add in diced red bell pepper and sauté for 3 minutes. Add 2 additional tablespoons of vegetable oil and then add in portabellos, Worcestershire sauce, and limejuice. Cook for approximately 10 minutes or until all liquid has fully evaporated.
  • Reduce heat to medium and stir in garlic and cilantro and cook for two minutes. Then remove from heat and set aside.
  • In a separate large nonstick skillet on medium high heat, toast each side of your tortillas. Remember to flip once the blisters start to get golden brown. In a shallow pan or dish add your green enchilada sauce and lightly dip each tortilla in the enchilada sauce for coating.
  • To assemble the pie, add just enough enchilada sauce to lightly coat the bottom of your skillet. Place one tortilla in the bottom of the skillet, top with half of the portabello mixture, then one cup of pepper jack cheese. Repeat with one more tortilla, the rest of the portabello mixture, and another cup cheese. Top with a third tortilla, the remaining enchilada sauce, and one cup of crumbled queso fresco. **skillet must be oven safe**
  • Bake for 10-15 minutes or until the cheese is bubbly on top. Slice and serve with extra green sauce and your favorite ingredients like: thinly sliced red onion, cilantro, sliced avocado, diced tomatoes and Mexican crema.
