The "horn" in this salad is actually a roasted poblano chile. The stuffing is a zesty mixture that is both rich and refreshing, with a contrast of textures. Serve it with a Mexican meal. From the article Exotic & Spicy Salads.
This is Mexico’s answer to the grilled cheese sandwich! They are most delicious made with the rich, stringy cheese from Chihuahua made by the Mennonites, but lacking that, any good melting cheese such as mozzarella, string or even Monterey Jack are good substitutes. Quesadillas can be made with either corn or flour tortillas and the tortillas can be folded in half over the filling, or stacked with the filling in between. Cheese isn’t the only food you can use, I use what is on hand in my refrigerator. Just remember you are only toasting the quesadilla until the cheese melts so any filling needs to be cooked before using.
We don't know about everyone, but we always seem to buy one too many bell peppers and scallions at the store. Scare up a few black beans, and you'll be able to give some of the orphans in your refrigerator a second try with this textured, tasty salad.
When chile growers Joe and Martha Lujan of Las Cruces, New Mexico were kind enough to show Harald and his wife Renate around their chile fields and roasting facility, Martha fixed them this tasty snack. Joe had just roasted a batch of green chiles, and Martha took some to the kitchen, stuffed them with Longhorn cheese, wrapped them in a tortilla and heated them in the microwave.
