This Week’s Fiesta Supper
Easy As 1-2-3
The flavors in the sauce really form the basis of what makes this dish so very tasty. If your family is a bit spice shy you can substitute by using bell peppers in place of the poblano. Likewise, if you’d like to add extra spice, there’s certainly room to personalize. My love of Costco rotisserie chicken rounds out the filling and takes some of the prep work out of the meal prep equation.
