Hatch Chile Quesadilla

An easy twist on a classic lunch favorite. Hatch Chiles will add that extra kick to your cheese quesadilla plus the multi-grain will leave you feeling guilt free! Healthy Choices without sacrificing the flavor, YUM. 


4 Hatch Chilies, Rinsed And Dried

1 Tablespoon Butter

1 Teaspoon Olive Oil

1 Clove Garlic Minced

Kosher Salt (To Taste)

4 Medium Multi-Grain Tortillas

1 1/2 - 2 Cups Shredded Monterey Jack Cheese

Sour Cream Optional


Blacken and blister chiles in your broiler or on a fire grill.

Step 2

Exchange freshly broiled chilies to a paper bag and keep sealed for 10 to 15 minutes. This will enable the peppers to sweat making peeling the skin simpler.

Step 3

Carefully remove the skin, seeds and stems of the roasted peppers with gloves. Chop peeled peppers and set aside.

Step 4

Heat butter and olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Sauté the onions until they  brown, about 15 minutes. Stir in the chopped peppers, garlic and salt. Remove from heat.

Step 5

Place one tortilla on a flat surface, sprinkle half the cheese and half of the pepper mixture onto the tortilla. Place the other tortilla on top. Repeat with remaining ingredients.

Step 6
Cook the quesadillas in a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat until the cheese is melted and the tortilla begins to brown. Slice and serve immediately with sour cream as desired.
