From the Test Kitchen

In this recipe, soft flour tortillas are toasted with a layer of melty cheddar cheese, then filled with a duo of sautéed chicken and poblano pepper. They’re perfectly matched by a side of fiery chipotle-roasted sweet potatoes and a bright, cooling lime mayo for dipping.

tips & techniques
Prepare & roast the sweet potatoes
1 Prepare & roast the sweet potatoes

Preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut the sweet potatoes into 1-inch-wide wedges. Place in a large bowl. Drizzle with olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Add as much of the chile paste as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Toss to thoroughly coat. Transfer to a sheet pan and arrange in an even layer, skin side down. Roast 26 to 28 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

Prepare the remaining ingredients & make the lime mayo
2 Prepare the remaining ingredients & make the lime mayo

Meanwhile, thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops. Using a zester or the small side of a box grater, finely grate the lime to get 1 teaspoon. Quarter the lime. Grate the cheese on the large side of a box grater. Cut off and discard the stem of the pepper. Halve lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds, then thinly slice crosswise. Thoroughly wash your hands immediately after handling. In a bowl, combine the mayonnaise, lime zest, and the juice of 1 lime wedge. Season with salt and pepper.

3 Cook the chicken & pepper

Pat the chicken dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper. In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned chicken and sliced pepper in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until browned. Add the sliced white bottoms of the scallions; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until the pepper is softened and the chicken is browned and cooked through. Turn off the heat; stir in the juice of 1 lime wedge.
