Feel free to use small (4-in.-wide) tortillas, if you can find them; then this recipe makes enough filling for 8 tacos. Time: 20 minutes.

Sunset DECEMBER 2009

  • Yield: Serves 4

Ingredients

  • 3 fresh poblano chiles (about 10 oz. total)
  • 1 white onion (about 1/2 lb.), thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/4 pound jack cheese, cut into thick slices
  • 4 to 6 warm corn or flour tortillas (6 to 7 in. wide)

Preparation

1. Preheat broiler. Put chiles on a baking sheet and broil about 3 in. from heat, turning as needed to char and blister on all sides, about 8 minutes total. Let cool. Discard stems and seeds. Cut chiles into thin strips.

2. Meanwhile, in a 6- to 8-in. frying pan over medium-high heat, cook onion in butter, stirring often, until softened, 4 to 5 minutes.

3. Stir in chile strips and top with a layer of cheese slices. Cover and cook over low heat until cheese melts, about 2 minutes. Scoop hot chile mixture into tortillas.
