How to Make Chicken Poblanochilada


  1. Cook chicken and dice. I used leftover chicken I had baked. Place in a mixing bowl. Add about 1 c of your favorite Mexican cheese. Add onion and 1 c of cottage cheese (drain excess juice from cottage cheese). Add salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Make a V shaped slit in poblano pepper, remove, and remove seeds and stem.
  3. Place chicken mixture in pepper and pat down.
  4. Place in a greased baking pan and top with extra cheese. Bake about 1 hr at 350°. Garnish with salsa, pico de gallo or your favorite Mexican toppings.
