You won’t believe how delicious this quesadilla is, of coarse everything taste good with roasted poblano in my opinion! It goes perfect with the homemade Black Beans, Pico de Gallo and/or Hot Sauce de Arbol y Ancho.
Recipe: Makes 2 Quesadilla
- 2 Roasted Poblano Peppers
- 1/2 Cup Cilantro Leaves
- Quesadilla Cheese or Jack
- 2 Flour, Spelt, Whole Wheat or Gluten Free Tortillas
- 2 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Roast the peppers - How to Roast Peppers
Remove stem and seeds then cut peppers into small cubes
I used a cheese called quesadilla which taste like a cross between jack and mozzarella
Shred the cheese
Put about 2 tablespoons olive oil in a pan then place two tortillas in the pan
Coat one then flip them both over to coat the other tortilla
Place oily sides of tortillas together and coat each tortillas other side then heat until slightly cooked
I like to heat the tortillas this way because it slightly cooks the insides and allows you to cook the outside as little or as much as you like
Flip tortillas so uncooked sides are on the outside
Take one tortilla out for a minute and put cheese on half of the cooked side, add poblano peppers and cilantro then fold. Repeat with other tortilla
You can add more cilantro and poblano if you like
Poblano Peppers are extremely high in vitamin C; just one pepper has 95% of your daily value. They are great for your immune system; poblanos help reduce inflammation like in arthritis and asthma. They contain lycopene (a powerful antioxidant, giving many fruits and vegetables their color, especially tomatoes), which is great for the prevention of cancers in the bladder, prostate, cervix and pancreas. They are also helpful with increasing oxygen so the body can burn more calories 20 minutes after eating peppers.
Cilantro is an immune-booster that helps detoxify the body by loosening them from the tissue, binding to and pulling out toxins and heavy metals. It helps promote a healthy liver function and is an overall digestive aid. It is a powerful anti-inflammatory that may help symptoms of arthritis and joint pain. It also helps with insulin secretion and lowers blood sugar. It is rich in antioxidants, essential oils, vitamins (one of the richest herbal sources for vitamin K), and dietary fiber.
