  • 4 4 (10-inch) flour tortillas
  • 1 cup Cabot cheddar or pepper jack cheese shredded
  • 2 roasted Poblano chile peppers diced
  • Salsa for garnish
  • Guacamole for garnish


  • Preheat a comal for 1 minute over medium-low heat. The temperature on the skillet is important so that the tortillas do not harden or overcook before the cheese fully melts.
  • Warm tortillas for 1 minute on one side, flip and sprinkle some of the cheese on one of the tortillas, add chile, and top with another tortilla and press gently with a spatula.
  • Flip occasionally until quesadillas are golden brown on each side and cheese has melted.
  • Repeat with remaining tortillas and ingredients.
  • Top them with salsa and guacamole, if desired.


  • Choose chile according to your tolerance for heat. For a very mild flavor roast poblano chile peppers or for a shortcut try canned Hatch diced green chile.
