  • 1 red onion
  • 8.8 oz mixed mushrooms
  • 1 yellow sweet pepper
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt and cayenne pepper
  • 1 bag grated Old Amsterdam
  • 4 wheat tortillas
  • 1 small container of sour cream
  • a few sprigs of coriander and a few chives, finely chopped


  • Cut the onion into rings, the mushrooms into quarters and the pepper into strips. Heat 2 tbsp olive oil and fry the onion until translucent. Add the pepper strips and fry for about 5 minutes until the vegetables are soft. Take everything out of the pan.
  • Heat 2 tbsp olive oil again and fry the mushrooms until brown. Mix them with the pepper and season with salt and a pinch of cayenne pepper.
  • Now place a tortilla in the pan. Sprinkle it with a layer of cheese, spoon some of the mushroom mixture on top, then some sour cream and then sprinkle some more cheese on top. Cover it with a tortilla and press it down with a spatula.
  • When the bottom layer of cheese has melted, turn it over (place your hand on the top tortilla for support if necessary) and let the other side brown and the cheese melt. Repeat this with the other two tortillas.
  • Cut them into 4 parts with a sharp knife, spoon sour cream over them and sprinkle with finely chopped chives and coriander.
