This were pretty good, but needed a little something extra. Next time I may try adding a ranchero sauce on it before putting it in the oven. I used poblano peppers (Baked at 450 degrees for 20 minutes, put in sealed glass bowl for 10 then peeled). I might also use Mexican white cheese instead of cheddar next time. Great concept! Thanks for posting!

These were really good! Hubby likes them spicy so I used jalapenos (big ones!) and I baked the rolls in the oven for about 12 minutes. The roasting of the peppers before stuffing really brought out a nice flavor - thanks!
