Used home raised Poblanos and Beaver Dam peppers we roasted & peeled and somehow a cup of red beans ended up in the bowl too - made for a FABULOUS side for our grilled blacktip shark Baja tacos!. Keeper recipe - the beans added a heartiness that was nice but will make next time without. Delicious - thank you for posting such a winner!
