  1. My favorite so far! I grow poblanos in the summer and I love stuffing them! I never thought to use cinnamon or nuts!
    I find that if I char the poblanos & put in plastic wrap till they cool down, I can grasp the stem just tightly enough in the wrap that I can pull the pepper out and leave the skin in the wrap. But only if I havenโ€™t over cooked them ๐Ÿคฃ. I wish I liked pomegranate seeds though. Maybe a pomegranate juice reduction for me? Anyway I love the recipe! And grapes in chicken salad ๐Ÿ˜.

    1. Oh no, not one of those grapes in chicken salad types! LOL! Thank you so much and I’m glad you enjoyed the podcast. I love poblanos so much too, though being from New Mexico, I am biased in favor of Big Jim green chiles. But you must allow me my prejudices. ๐Ÿ™‚ I think pomegranate reduction sounds wonderful, and since I played around with the traditional filling too, I’d imagine you could use any colorful topping you’d like. Finely chopped red grapes or strawberries? Anyway, thank you again!
