I named this dish after my husband because while we were at the store he spotted these poblano’s and said “ honey you could rock these “ so I just had to buy them, he really didn’t need to twist my arm ha ha ha. 3 will be on the dinner table today and the rest are in the freezer for other dishes! When you have such a favorable and spicy filling the Poblano pepper is the perfect choice. It will give you great flavor without any added heat. If you don't want to make the cheese spread, drain a jar of your favorite salsa and use that. HOTTSIE TOTTSIE DIPSIE DOOOO CHEESE SPREAD HERE ON JAP.
