"I made this dish several weeks ago and it was a huge winner. I found two beautiful poblano peppers and made no changes to the recipe. The peppers give this dish a wonderful flavor and not hot at all. I highly recommend this recipe as a Volunteer Field Editor."

"My husband loved these - he said it needed at least a 5-star rating, and I agree! He's already asked for them again next week. Super simple and quick meal!"
