From the Test Kitchen

Our quesadillas are loaded with a duo of Monterey Jack and queso blanco cheeses, which delightfully melt around a filling of tender cremini mushrooms and poblano pepper. A side of tangy lime yogurt provides cooling contrast as you dollop or dip with each bite.

1 Prepare the ingredients & start the salad:

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Remove and discard the husks and silks of the corn. Cut the kernels off the cobs; discard the cobs. Quarter the lime. Thinly slice the mushrooms. Halve the tomatoes. Place in a large bowl; season with salt and pepper. Cut off and discard the stem of the poblano pepper; remove and discard the core. Halve lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Roughly chop the jalapeño pepper; add as much as you’d like to the bowl of seasoned tomatoes, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Stir to combine. Thoroughly wash your hands, knife, and cutting board after handling the peppers.
