We developed this recipe after trying a similar appetizer at a restaurant in Austin, TX. Depending on the peppers, these quesadillas can be mild and fruity or spicy hot.

This is delicious! I roasted my pepper over the gas burner until it was charred then put it right into a sandwich bag while it was still hot...the steam makes it very simple to just wipe off the skin. I've found that the more 'stuff' you use in the quesadilla the better! Read More

I had high hopes for this as I love mangos but was very disappointed. The Quesadillas didn't have very much flavour. I added a little cheddar cheese to a couple of them and they did have a slightly better flavour. Prefer CHEESY TORTILLAS from this site. Read More

These were pretty good but needed a little something more. I made up some sour cream and dill mixture for the side and also added some shreddec cheddar to a couple of them to add more flavor. Read More

Wow this was surprisingly great! I added the tiniest sprinkle of cheddar cheese for added flavor and served them with sante fe caesar salad. I cooked the quesadillas on my George Foreman grill for 6 minutes and they were perfect. Read More

This was a really good recipe - have already used it twice. Substituted goat cheese for the cream cheese both times and cooked the peppers a little before adding them to the quesadilla the second time. Very simple but very flavorful. Great with black bean soup! Read More

I wasn't sure how these were going to turn out because i don't like mangos but they were good and my husband loved them too. We have been looking for a good poblano recipe because we have a poblano plant. and we found it!!! Read More

I REALLY loved this recipe! The wonderful thing about this recipe is it opens up a wide variety of different items to grill in tortilla wraps on the grill. The original was a big hit. Read More

As written this is pretty bland; yes the peppers are flavorful but the cream cheese adds nothing to the flavor or the texture. Next time I will ditch the cream cheese and use either Montery Jack/ Colby cheese or cheddard instead and serve with a mango salsa or pepper salsa on top. Read More
