“My own recipe for stuffed poblano peppers. Just happened to be walking through my farmers' market and spotted these nice green peppers. I have had them stuffed with cheese at Mexican resturants in the past and love them. So upon seeing the peppers I picked up a few. All the way home I was thinking in my head as to how I planned to fix them for my wife and I. Here is my end result and boy-o-boy are they some kind of tasty. Please do try them for yourself. Enjoy!”
