Equipment

Ingredients

  • 24 ounces thick sliced Bacon
  • 1 Large White or Yellow Onions large dice
  • 12 ounces White Button Mushrooms sliced thin
  • 4 cups Shredded Monterey Jack Cheese
  • 20 Flour Tortillas soft taco or fajita size
  • 4 tablespoons Butter softened

Instructions

  • Cut bacon into 1-inch pieces and fry in a skillet over medium-high heat until cook to your liking.
  • Remove bacon from skillet and place on layered paper towels to drain, leave about 3 or 4 tablespoons of bacon fat in skillet.
  • In a skillet with bacon fat over medium heat, add onions and cook until onions just begin to turn translucent. Remove from heat and place on paper towels or in a colander to drain. Leave bacon fat in the skillet.
  • In the same skillet, add mushrooms and turn heat to medium. Cook, stirring often until mushrooms are wilted. Remove from pan and drain on paper towels or in a colander.
  • Allow the cooked ingredients to cool.
  • Placed cooled ingredients in a large bowl. Add shredded cheese and toss with hands to combine. Set aside.
  • Butter one side of each tortilla.
  • Preheat electric griddle to 375, or preheat a skillet over medium to medium-high heat on a stovetop.
  • Take one tortilla and place butter down on a preheated griddle or clean skillet. Place a heaping 1/4 cup (or more if you like) filling on a tortilla and cover with another tortilla, butter side up, like a grilled cheese.
  • Cook until the bottom tortilla has browned to your liking.
  • Flip over and cook the other side until cheese is melted and the tortilla is browned.
  • Remove to a cutting board and cut into four pieces.
  • Serve warm with sour cream, Pico de Gallo, guacamole, and/or queso dip.
