      I used left over shrimp and garlic from a boil. I also used light sour cream, 3 tablespoons olive oil, and only one cup of cheese. I was probably able to reduce the fat by 1/2 but it was still very rich and yummy. I was so surprised when the kids liked it, which doesn't happen often. I will definitely make again. Thanks.

      We really enjoyed this recipe. Didn't have a poblano on hand, so we used some dice Hatch green chiles and even tossed in some roasted corn kernals. Next time I might add some cream cheese just to add a creamier depth to the filling, we do that in a chicken enchilada recipe and it's great. Thanks for the recipe, we'll file it away.

      This is really excellent. I made some modifications based on the ingredients I could get. I used canned tomatillos and jalepenos for the sauce and I used a fresh jalepeno instead of the pablano pepper, low fat sour cream and cheddar cheese. I also included mushrooms. It was really good and I look forward to trying it with chicken.
