    Manami's Note:

    This vibrantly flavored dish and its sweet smoky heat makes for a wonderful meal! I found this on the mccormickgourmet.com web site after seeing part of the recipe in Bon Appetit Magazine, June 2009 edition. Low cal and staff favorite!! ;)

      This is a wonderful recipe. Easy to make and wonderful to eat! The manchego cheese is a little pricey in my area, so I substitute with a queso type cheese when I'm not entertaining guests. I'm so happy to have found this recipe. I was searching for recipes using poblano chilies since I grew them in my garden and had a bumper crop. I stumbled onto this jewel and I'm so glad I did!

      Absolutely wonderful! I made some changes due to my family's diet restrictions but this is a quick and easy meal that looks like you slaved all day. I had a bunch of the red pepper sauce left but I just saved it for another dish. Thanks you for sharing.
