  • 1/2 cup poblano peppers, seeded and chopped
  • 1/3 cup onion, chopped
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/3 cup tequila
  • 1-1/2 cups queso quesadilla, shredded
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • 1/2 cup tomato, chopped
  • 1 tbsp cilantro, chopped
  • Tortilla chips or warmed tortillas


  • Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  • In a medium size skillet heat up the olive oil. Add the poblano pepper and onions to the oil and cook over medium-high heat until the peppers and onions are tender. About 5 minutes.
  • Remove the skillet from the heat and carefully add the tequila to the skillet. Return the skillet to the stove, lower heat and simmer uncovered for about 15-30 seconds, until most of the tequila has evaporated. Leave enough liquid so the vegetables are still moist.
  • Spoon the mixture into a 2-cup oven proof dish or small oven proof skillet
  • In a separate bowl, toss the shredded cheese with the flour, then sprinkle the cheese over the cooked vegetables in the dish.
  • Bake in the pre-heated oven for 10 minutes, just until the cheese is melted. Turn the oven to broil and cook for 2-3 minutes until the cheese starts to bubble. Remove from the oven.
  • Garnish with the tomatoes and the cilantro and serve.
