Anyway, occasionally I use to watch Guy Fieri, whatever his cooking show was. The one with the outrageous background props and Nascar (or whatever it was) on a huge tv in the background. While I found him to get pretty annoying while cooking, I always thought his food was really appealing, and seemed to be the stuff I like to eat.
I must have cooked other Fieri recipes, but I can't remember, so this will be my first official one. And I loved it! I love the flavor, the amount of heat, the texture. I loved everything about these stuffed peppers. They are a meal in itself, I don't think I served anything along side of them (it really doesn't need anything else). If your poblanos are small, definitely use more of them. I believe I used 6 or 7 poblanos for this recipe.
