Yield: Yields 8 quesadillas
This is a great, simple appetizer or light supper that uses strips of roasted poblanos also known as rajas.
Distribute the cheese, ham, and poblano strips equally over one half of each of the flour tortillas. Fold the tortillas in half. In a 10-inch skillet, heat 1 tsp. of the butter over medium heat. When the butter starts to bubble, add two of the folded tortillas and toast until the cheese melts and the tortilla is crisp, 2 to 3 min., flipping halfway through. Repeat with the remaining butter and quesadillas. Serve piping hot.
Idea: Roasted poblano or Anaheim strips, called rajas, taste great in a melted cheese snack—just combine the chiles and Monterey Jack or mozzarella in a small ovenproof dish and set under the broiler until the cheese bubbles. Serve on crusty bread or tortillas.

Yummy recipe!!! Just a suggestion, if you want to make it a bit more high-end for guests, use instead jamon iberico de bellota - aka pata negra or black hoof-. Iberico has a strong and delicious flavor,I buy mine from BuyJamon.comBuyJamon.com the market place for iberico ham.
very tasty- would do again.
