From the Test Kitchen

To top these zesty quesadillas, we’re making our version of rajas con crema, a comforting Mexican dish of smoky roasted poblano pepper coated in a smooth, creamy sauce. Our filling highlights grated zucchini, alongside golden raisins, a touch of jalapeño pepper, and two cheeses: queso blanco and Monterey Jack.

tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Grate the zucchini 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. Grate the Monterey Jack cheese on the large side of a box grater. Cut off and discard the stem of the poblano pepper; halve lengthwise, then remove and discard the ribs and seeds. Roughly chop the jalapeño pepper. Thoroughly wash your hands, knife, and cutting board immediately after handling the peppers.

Roast the poblano pepper:
2 Roast the poblano pepper:

Place the halved poblano pepper on a 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; when cool enough to handle, small dice. Place in a medium bowl.

Make the filling:
3 Make the filling:

While the poblano pepper roasts, in a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 1 teaspoon 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, queso blanco (crumbling before adding), 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. 

Assemble & cook the quesadillas:
4 Assemble & cook the quesadillas:

While the poblano pepper continues to roast, place the tortillas on a work surface. Top one side of each tortilla with the filling and grated Monterey Jack cheese. Fold the tortillas in half over the filling. In the same pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium until hot. Add the quesadillas. Cook 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until browned and the cheese is melted (if the pan seems dry, add a drizzle of olive oil before flipping). Transfer to a plate and immediately season with salt and pepper; cover with aluminum foil to keep warm. Wipe out the pan.

Fry the eggs:
5 Fry the eggs:

In the same pan, heat a drizzle 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.

Dress the poblano pepper & serve your dish:
6 Dress the poblano pepper & serve your dish:

To the bowl of diced poblano pepper, add the crema or sour cream, the juice of 1 lime wedge, and a drizzle of olive oil. Stir to combine; season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve the cooked quesadillas topped with the dressed poblano pepper and fried eggs. Garnish with the sliced green tops of the scallions. Serve with the remaining lime wedges on the side. Enjoy!
