This is very good and much easier than stuffing the cheese into the chiles, but with pretty much the same flavor of the traditional method. If you don't care for hot food, you could use plain Monterey jack cheese instead of the pepper-jack. I use roasted Hatch Peppers (mild), when available (late Aug-Sept here in NoVa). Easily adaptable to a veggie main dish by leaving out the chicken. It is 9 servings but my family of 5 polished it off. Even the 1 who NEVER takes 2nds went back for a bit more!
