      3 fresh chile peppers, such as poblanos — any variety may be used, according to your tolerance for heat
      4 (12-inch) large flour tortillas
      3 cups (3/4 pound brick) smoked cheddar (recommended: Cabot brand, shredded)
      1 cup store bought salsa verde, available on chip and snack aisle or in Mexican food section
      1 cup sour cream
      2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves
      Directions
      Heat a grill pan over high heat.

      Place whole chiles on grill and char all over. about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and split chiles.

      Scrape away seeds with a spoon and slice.

      Heat a large nonstick skillet or griddle over medium high heat. Char the tortilla and blister it on 1 side, 20 seconds, then flip tortilla. Cover half of the tortilla with cheese and chilies, then fold over.

      Press down gently with spatula. Cook quesadilla 15 seconds more on each side, transfer to a cutting board. Repeat.

      Pile up 2 completed quesadillas at a time and cut into 3 generous wedges. The yield will be 12 pieces from 4 quesadillas. Serve slices on a large platter with small dishes of salsa verde and sour cream for topping.

      Garnish the platter and toppings with chopped cilantro.
