  • ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • ½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup white onion, diced small
  • 4 ounces baby bella mushrooms, rinsed dried and diced small
  • 1 cup red bell pepper, diced small
  • 2 tablespoons jalapeno, minced, remove seeds and veins
  • 1 cup corn kernels, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper


  • 2 large non-stick skillets


Prepare the hatch chiles

  • Preheat the grill to 400 degrees.
  • Add the hatch chiles directly to the grill. Grill for 3-4 minutes per side.
  • Once the skin has a dark char, remove them from the grill. Allow them to cool.
  • Cut the stem off the chile and slice it in half. Scrape out the seeds and veins.
  • Turn the chile over and peel off the charred skin. Repeat for all chiles.

Prepare the sauteed vegetables

  • In a large non-stick skillet over medium heat, add butter.
  • Once melted, add the diced onions, diced mushrooms, diced red bell peppers, corn, black beans, jalapeno, salt and pepper. Sauté until soft and lightly browned. Set aside.

Assemble the dish

  • Heat a tortilla over medium heat in a large non-stick skillet. Flip frequently.
  • Once air bubbles begin to form in the tortilla, lay it flat in the pan.
  • Add a mixture of mozzarella and cheddar cheese to half of the tortilla.
  • Layer on the grilled hatch chiles.
  • Spoon on the sauteed vegetables.
  • Fold the tortilla in half. Sear until golden brown on both sides.
  • Cut into quarters and enjoy.
