Preparation
  1. 1 In a small skillet over medium heat, add a drizzle of oil followed by the poblano and jalapeno peppers. Cook for a minute or two until they just start to soften. Season the peppers with a small pinch of salt.
  2. Heat your waffle iron and cut tortillas to fit the waffle iron if necessary.
  3. Place a tortilla on the waffle iron and add a small amount of grated cheese, followed by about half of the pepper mix. Sprinkle on some Old El Paso™ taco seasoning mix and another good handful of cheese. Top with a second tortilla and close the waffle iron.
  4. Cook the quesadilla until the cheese is melted and bubbling out and the tortilla is lightly browned. Remove quesadilla using a fork or knife, and cut into quarters for easy serving. Garnish with extra salsa, cilantro and sour cream as desired.
Expert Tips
  • Dab a paper towel in a neutral oil and wipe the plates of your waffle iron before cooking to make sure the quesadilla doesn’t stick!
