Stuffed Poblano Peppers

Do not underestimate these bad boys.
These are a quick and easy supper that everyone at the table will enjoy.  I also like to make an extra batch of ‘stuffing’ to eat throughout the week.  It’s great plain, wrapped in a whole wheat tortilla, or mixed with a little rice.  Go loco!
