    Roasted Poblano Quesadillas

    Quesadillas are the ideal late night snack. Not only are they a snap to put together, they can be made from just about anything on hand. In this recipe, roasted poblanos, onions, fresh cilantro and lots of freshly shredded cheese make an irresistible quesadilla for a quick dinner or snack!


    Ingredients
    4
    large poblano peppers
    1/4
    cup
    Olive Oil
    2
    medium onions, sliced
    4
    flour tortillas, quesadilla or fajita size
    3
    to 4 cups shredded Monterey Jack, pepper Jack, or Chihuahua cheese
    1
    cup
    cilantro, chopped
    Directions
    Preheat broiler to high. Place poblanos on a baking sheet and char under the broiler, turning, until the skin blackens on all sides, 7 to 8 minutes.
    Place the charred peppers in a bowl and cover with a towel or plastic wrap; let stand 10 minutes. Peel and seed the peppers, then slice.
    Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until tender, 4 to 5 minutes. Remove from skillet and mix with the peppers.
    In the same skillet over medium-high heat add a drizzle of the remaining 3 tablespoons oil and one tortilla, cover the tortilla with one-quarter of the cheese, poblano and onion mixture and cilantro.
    Fold the tortilla in half and cook 2 minutes to crisp and char the tortilla evenly and melt cheese. Remove and cut into wedges; repeat with remaining oil, tortillas and filling ingredients.
