From the Test Kitchen

To top these zesty shredded zucchini and cheddar quesadillas, we’re making an easy take on rajas con crema, a comforting Mexican dish of smoky roasted poblano strips coated with smooth crema or sour cream. The rich yolks from our crispy fried eggs provide the perfect finishing touch.

tips & techniques
Prepare & roast the poblano pepper:
1 Prepare & roast the poblano pepper:

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Line a sheet pan with aluminum foil. Cut off and discard the stem of the poblano pepper; halve lengthwise, then remove and discard the ribs and seeds. Place on the sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; turn to coat. Arrange cut side up. Roast 16 to 18 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Transfer to a cutting board; carefully small dice. Place in a medium bowl. 

Prepare the remaining ingredients:
2 Prepare the remaining ingredients:

While the poblano pepper roasts, grate the zucchini on the large side of a box grater. Grate the cheese on the large side of a box grater. Cut off and discard the root ends of the scallions; thinly slice, separating the white bottoms and green tops. Quarter the lime. Roughly chop the jalapeño pepper. Thoroughly wash your hands, knife, and cutting board immediately after handling. 

Make the filling:
3 Make the filling:

While the poblano pepper continues to roast, in a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the grated zucchini; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly softened. Transfer to a large bowl. Stir in the raisins, grated cheese, sliced white bottoms of the scallions, the juice of 1 lime wedge, and as much of the chopped jalapeño pepper as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Season with salt and pepper. Wipe out the pan.

5 Fry the eggs:

In the same pan, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Keeping them separate, crack the eggs into the pan; season with salt and pepper. Cook 3 to 5 minutes, or until the whites are set and the yolks are cooked to your desired degree of doneness. Turn off the heat.
