Lobster-Green Chile Quesadillas with Cheddar and Smoked Swiss Cheeses

Makes 8 servings. 2 quesadillas per serving.


  • 4 chile poblanos, roasted, peeled, seeded and julienned
  • 2 c. (3/4 to 1 pound) lobster meat, blanched and chopped
  • 1 1/2 c. (about 2 ounces) spinach leaves, chiffonade
  • 1 c. (4 oz.) Smoked Swiss Cheese, finely shredded
  • 6 oz. (1 1/2 c.) Aged Cheddar Cheese, finely shredded
  • 16 6" flour tortillas
  • 4 tbsp. (1/2 stick) butter, melted and divided


In large bowl, mix chilles, lobster meat, spinach, Swiss and Cheddar Cheeses. Place tortillas flat and spread lobster mixture over, leaving a border. Fold each tortilla in half.

Heat griddle to 325°F. Pour 2 tablespoons butter over and spread evenly. Fry quesadillas, turning until golden brown on both sides and adding butter as necessary. Cut each quesadilla into 3 wedges and serve.
