Grilled Corn and Poblano Quesadilla


When hunger strikes, throw an ear of corn and poblano pepper on the BBQ before sandwiching between mozzarella cheese and two tortillas. Melted to perfection with a beautiful golden brown finish on either side, this veggie quesadilla is adorned by kiddos and adults alike. 


Yield: 4, 5-inch quesadillas

Oven: N/A

Preparation time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Add To Cart

2 tablespoons vegetable oil, for grilling

1 corn on the cob

1 poblano chili

8, 5-inch flour or corn tortillas

3 cups grated mozzarella cheese


1.   Preheat a grill pan or BBQ over medium – high heat. Coat the corn and poblano with oil and grill until charred on all sides, approximately 4 minutes in total. Transfer the poblano to a heavy duty ziplock bag and seal. Allow to steam for 10 minutes.

2.   Meanwhile, using a serrated knife, remove corn from the cobb.

3.   After the poblano has steamed for 10 minutes, use the back (dull side) of a chef knife to scrape off the charred skin. Remove the stem and seeds and roughly chop into pieces the size of corn kernels.

4.   Lay 4 tortillas on your cutting board and divide half the cheese to cover. Add grilled corn and poblanos, top with the remaining cheese and cover with the reserved tortillas.

5.   Heat a large skillet or griddle over medium heat until hot, approximately 1 – 2 minutes. Add 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil and working in batches if needed, add quesadillas and cook until the bottom is lightly golden brown in color, approximately 2 – 3 minutes. Carefully flip and cook the second side until also light golden in color, another 2 – 3 minutes, and the cheese has melted. 

6.   Transfer cooked quesadillas to a cutting board and allow to cool until the cheese has set, approximately 2 minutes. Cut into wedges and serve with salsa, guacamole, sour cream or garnish of choice.
