Holy Moley Quesadillas

Holy moly, batman...how I love mole sauce!

Something about the spicy and sweet (not to mention chocolaty) taste mixed together is simply heavenly.

One day, I thought about how much I love mole sauce. And quesadillas. And mushrooms. This recipe was born on that day!

It's actually quite simple and easy to make. I whipped 'em up one night in less than thirty minutes.

Mole sauce and spinach...

Mushrooms and onions...wait, how did that chocolate spread get in the photo...um. Equally yummy but not part of this recipe :)

Cook it all up!

Prepare it for a little baking in the oven...


I only wish I had one to eat right now. This minute.
