Quesadillas with Tangy Chiles and Onions


  • 2-3 (5 ounces) large mild chiles, poblano, Anaheim, or mild green
  • 1/2 (5 ounces) medium-large yellow onion
  • 1 tablespoon corn oil or safflower oil
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup NAKANO Natural Rice Vinegar
  • 4 flour tortillas, 8-inch diameter
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded Mexican blend cheese


  1. Cut onion into 1/4-inch thick slices. Cut off stem end of chiles. Cut chiles in half lengthwise and remove seeds and veins. Slice chiles into 1/4-inch wide strips. In a 10-inch skillet, heat oil with chili powder and salt over high heat. Add chiles and onions; saute 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Pour in rice vinegar. Cook and stir 4 minutes or until vinegar evaporates; remove from heat.
  2. Meanwhile, preheat another 10-12-inch skillet. (An iron frying pan or non-stick pan works well.) To make quesadillas one at a time: Place a tortilla in hot skillet. Turn over when tortilla starts to brown on the bottom. Sprinkle 1/2-cup cheese on half the tortilla. Arrange some of the Tangy Chiles and Onions over cheese, then fold tortilla over cheese. Cook until cheese melts; turn over once to brown both sides.
