    Chef Kate's Note:

    Roasted poblanos are so good in this! From the Bon Appetit Cookbook via Rob Kaspar in the Baltimore Sun. Queso Anejo is a salty, dry, aged white cheese but Romano is an acceptable substitute.

      Having no fresh poblamos, we used canned roasted chiles, and also substituted Romano cheese. The potatoes cooked through nicely and the cheese layer on the top cooked to a rich abstract pattern. We enjoyed this with a pork tenderloin and asparagus. Made for Please Review My Recipe March 2008.

      Excellent, even though I made some changes. I used half and half rather than whipping cream and substituted Romano for the queso anejo. As I reduced the dish, I needed to bake it for only one hour.
