Tangy Quesadillas

6 Min

We could almost guarantee you've never had quesadillas like this before! They're great as an appetizer, snack, for lunch or anytime! (And check out our tips for slicing poblano chilies.)

What You'll Need

  • 1 tablespoon corn oil
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large mild poblano chilies, thinly sliced (see Tip)
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup natural rice vinegar
  • 4 (8-inch) flour tortillas
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded Mexican cheese blend

What to Do

  1. In a large skillet, heat the oil, chili powder, and salt over high heat. Add the chilies and onion, and sauté for 2 minutes, stirring frequently.
  2. Add the rice vinegar; cook, stirring, for 4 minutes, or until the vinegar evaporates. Remove from the heat and place in a bowl.
  3. Wipe out skillet, and preheat over high heat. Place a tortilla in the skillet and sprinkle 1/2 cup cheese on the tortilla then spoon 1/4 of the chile and onion mixture over the cheese. When cheese is soft, fold the tortilla over in half and cook until the cheese is completely melted.
  4. Repeat with remaining tortillas. Slice and serve.


Here's how to slice the chilies: Cut off stems, cut chilies in half lengthwise, remove seeds then slice chilies into 1/4-inch strips.

Herb Crusted Lamb with Mint Sauce

Instead of cooking ham or prime rib for Easter, why not try something new this year? Our Herb-Crusted Lamb with Mint Sauce may look and sound fancy, but it's really easy to do. It's basically a rack of lamb that's coated with herbs and spices before it's roasted to perfection. Just before serving, it's finished off with a mint-wine reduction. The end result is an Easter-worthy main dish that'll impress everyone at the table.
