    Heat 10-inch cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat until it starts to smoke. Reduce heat to medium-low. Add poblano chiles; let cook without stirring 1 minute. Stir; cook 1 minute longer or until chiles are slightly charred and begin to soften. Remove from skillet; place in covered bowl to keep warm.

    Spray skillet with cooking spray. Add beef; cooking briefly on each side until no longer pink. Remove from heat; place beef in same covered bowl to keep warm.
  • 4
    In blender or food processor, place sour cream, remaining 1/2 teaspoon cumin, dash of salt and the green chiles. Cover; process until smooth.

  • Sauté some sliced onions with the poblano chile strips for a more filling fajita.
