EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

The poblano chile pepper is triangle or heart-shaped, about 2 1/2 to 3 inches across at its widest part and 4 to 5 inches long. It's dark green in color-sometimes almost black-and ranges from mild to hot in flavor. Because of its large shape, it's a good choice for stuffing.

Instead of spooning the chicken mixture into rolls, serve it on a bed of rice pilaf or buttered noodles.
