Green Chile Asadero Quesadillas

Green Chile Asadero Quesadillas


If you have never had asadero cheese, the consistency is a little bit like American Singles. The taste is mild and creamy like provolone. It's a Mexican cheese that is often used for quesadillas, tacos, and nachos, simply because of its crazy melt-factor. It melts down to almost a thick cheese sauce consistency.

At the Wine Fest and Southern NM State Fair, they use this cheese for quesadillas and lay a big strip of green chile in there. You can just chop off the top and put a whole roasted chile in there. If you like a little less heat, you can slice one side of the roasted chile and open the whole thing up spatchcock-style.

The huge chunk of chile makes these quesadillas one of a kind, as opposed to the chopped chile that you generally find in green chile chicken quesadillas. Trust us on this one. The asadero has a mild flavor, and adding a whole green chile helps that unique southwest flavor really shine!
