I really loved this recipe. I love any recipe wih poblano peppers and cheese. The only changes I made is that I used 6 tomatillos instead of green tomatoes for the sauce. I also used cooked and shredded chicken instead of the bite sized pieces.

  2. Bring to a boil then reduce heat slightly and continue heating until the tomatoes and jalapenos turn light green (about 10–15 minutes).
