  • 5 oz champignon mushrooms (or white mushrooms)
  • 4 tortillas, 10 or 8 inch
  • 3.5 oz yellow cheese (cheddar or other cow cheese)
  • 2 oz sweet corn
  • 6-7 green olives
  • 2 Tbsp red wine
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • Oregano, to taste
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. Chop the mushrooms and the olives into thin slices and shred the cheese.
  2. Heat some olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat.
  3. When the oil is ready add the mushrooms and sprinkle some salt, pepper and oregano on top.
  4. Cook the mushrooms for 10 minutes until they get soft and release their juice.
  5. Add the red wine and cook the mushrooms for additional 5 to 10 minutes. Don’t forget to stir all the time.
  6. Turn the stove on low heat. In another pan, add a little bit of olive oil and place one tortilla inside.
  7. Start adding the ingredients on top of the tortilla, one by one. First the cheese and then continue with the corn, olives and the mushrooms.
  8. Finish by adding another tortilla on top. Press the top tortilla with your palms and after 2 minutes flip it, so the other tortilla can bake as well.
  9. Repeat the procedure with the other tortillas.
  10. When you are done, cut the tortillas into equal pieces and serve them with a tomato paste mixed with oregano and salt.
