Expert Tips

  • For added heat, add 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of ground red pepper (cayenne) with the seasoning mix. Don’t like spice? Substitute the poblano chile in this recipe with a milder green bell pepper.
  • Cotija cheese is a salty, crumbly Mexican cheese.
  • When handling hot chile peppers, be sure to wear kitchen gloves to protect your hands. Be careful not to touch your face or eyes, as the seeds and membranes of chiles can cause burns. Always wash your hands thoroughly after handling chiles.
  • Poblano chiles are fresh and typically mild chile peppers. When dried, they are called ancho chiles.
