Recipe by Manami
We made this the other day without the poblanos and the next day we made it with! Wonderful flavors and the olives, tomatoes and capers are common in dishes from Mexico's Veracruz region. We served it with a simple steak of palomilla and a nice salad. It probably would be best served with fajitas and all their wonderful toppings.
