I think this originally came from the Too Hot Tamales Show but I've made some minor changes. The original recipe calls for 2 strips thick-cut bacon. I seldom cook with bacon but when I do I save the drippings, so I usually have a container of that in the fridge. I've also increased the poblanos because I love 'em! I buy 6 or 8 at a time, roast them and freeze them whole. They peel easily when thawed.
