Mexican food is one of my favorites, especially when it is centered around roasted peppers and fresh flavors. Chile rellenos are one of my favorite things to make, but they can be tedious and time consuming. So I have been on a mission to find new ways to use the same great flavors of a chile relleno in faster and simpler recipes!
Roasted peppers are one of my favorite things to include in recipes. The roasting brings out an amazing flavor in a simple way. You can roast any peppers you like, but poblanos (like in this Vegetarian Chile Relleno Quesadilla) are my favorite. Learn how to roast peppers here!
I also love poblanos because they have a mild heat so I can pile them up for a lot of roasted pepper flavor without making them too hot! Make a spicy Vegetarian Chile Relleno Quesadilla by using hotter peppers or adding hot sauce.
You can also make a meat eater version with Chicken Chile Relleno Quesadillas. Add any vegetables or add ins that you like. I love to add some onion and corn, but keeping the focus on the roasted peppers. And serve them up with your favorite sauces! This Creamy Roasted Poblano and Lime Enchilada Sauce that you see in the pictures here is my favorite! And it is the perfect compliment for the Vegetarian Chile Relleno Quesadilla without overpowering the simple flavors.
