Who can pass up a good quesadilla? Not us! Check out this easy-enough Roasted Poblano Chicken Quesadilla recipe below! 


  • 2 medium poblano peppers
  • 2 cups (8 oz.) shredded Mexican cheese blend
  • 1 cup cooked, shredded chicken
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon Spice Islands® Onion Salt
  • 6 (8 to 10-inch) flour tortillas
  • 2 tablespoons Mazola® Corn Oil


  1. Roast poblano peppers under the broiler, over a gas flame OR on the grill. Heat for 5 to 7 minutes per side or until surface skin on the peppers is blistered and charred. Using tongs, transfer peppers to a paper bag or a covered bowl and set aside until cool enough to handle. Rinse peppers under running water to remove stem, seeds, pith and all charred material. Pat dry and cut into 1-inch strips.
  2. Heat griddle or large skillet over medium-high heat OR place oven rack in upper third of oven and pre-heat broiler to 400ºF.
  3. Combine roasted poblano strips, cheese, chicken, cilantro and onion salt in a small bowl.
  4. Evenly divide the filling and spread over one half of each tortilla. Fold remaining half over to form a semi-circle.
  5. Lightly brush both sides of quesadillas with corn oil.
  6. Heat quesadillas for 1 to 2 minutes per side or until lightly browned and cheese is melted. (For broiler method, place quesadillas on a baking sheet and broil for 1 to 2 minutes per side or until lightly browned and cheese is melted.)
  7. Cut quesadillas into wedges and serve with salsa and sour cream, if desired.
  8. Recipe Tips: Filling can be refrigerated up to 2 days ahead. For convenience, use shredded rotisserie chicken.
