This was a good base... but I did a little "editing" and it's fantastic! I only used 1/2 t of garlic, and added about 1/2 c more liquid. For the liquid I used Crema Mexicana. I also added some salt, paprika, smoked paprika, cumin & coriander.

It's definitely a good recipe, but there was way too much garlic. Also, I only used two poblano peppers and that was more than enough (this definitely depends on the size of the pepper; mine were on the bigger side). Don't get me wrong, this recipe is great, but not Qdoba great. I think just lose the garlic or keep it to one teaspoon and you've got more than a copycat, but an exact replica. Thanks!

Very, very good! I have made lots of different Queso dips and I really liked this one a lot. I roasted the poblano peppers in the oven and then skinned them. Throw those and the tomatoes in a food processor. I do not ever use American cheese, so I just doubled the colby/monterey jack. Great!
