Impossible Quesadilla Pie (Impossibly Easy!) for #WeekdaySupper

Recipe: Impossible Quesadilla Pie

Summary: Quesadilla flavors – cheese! Hatch chiles! cilantro! — bake into a lunch or weekday supper savory pie. This is fast, delicious and a bit of a baking miracle.


  • 2 cups (8 ounces) extra sharp shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 3-4 roasted Hatch chiles [1], chopped (about 3-4 ounces; or use 1 4-ounce can chopped green chiles)
  • 1/4 to 1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • Melissas Hatch Chile Powder Mild [2]3/4 cup baking mix (such as Bisquick; or make your own using recipe below)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground Hatch chile powder (I used Melissa’s Mild Hatch Chile Powder [3])
  • 1 1/2 cups milk (I used 1% milk)
  • 3 eggs
  • Garnish: salsa (a fruit salsa is sensational with this!)


  1. Heat oven to 400ºF. Mist a 9- or 10-inch pie dish with nonstick spray.Impossible Quesadilla Pie on Shockingly Delicious [4]
  2. Sprinkle cheese evenly into pie dish, followed by chiles and cilantro.
  3. In a bowl (or you could whirl it in a blender), stir baking mix, cumin, Hatch chile powder, milk and eggs until well blended. Pour evenly into pie dish over cheese. Don’t worry, the cilantro will begin to float on top. This is charming!Impossible Quesadilla Pie on Shockingly Delicious [5]
