1. Preheat broiler

Let stand 15 minutes. Peel poblano and bell pepper; discard seeds and membranes. Cut peeled peppers into thin strips.

Add pepper strips and mushrooms; cook 5 minutes or until mushrooms are tender and moisture evaporates, stirring frequently. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

4. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons Monterey Jack and 1 tablespoon goat cheese, and 1 1/2 teaspoons cilantro over each vegetable-topped tortilla; top each with remaining tortillas.

5. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Place 1 quesadilla in pan; cook 5 minutes on each side or until tortillas are crisp. Repeat procedure with remaining quesadillas. Cut each quesadilla into 6 wedges.


For a smokier flavor, grill the vegetables instead of sauteing them.

Have you ever served a taco salad in the heat of a Texas summer and wondered....What can I serve with this, or what can I serve as an opener? This recipe pairs well with a Taco salad, as an appetizer and also works well as a nutricious after school snack!
