Roast the peppers - How to Roast Peppers

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

Flip a few times to evenly heat.  When golden they are ready to eat!  Serve with Refried Beans or Black Beans

 It is good with Pico De GalloRoasted Poblano Cilantro SalsaHot Sauce de Arbol y Ancho and Chipotle Hot Sauce
