Notes

I came up with this recipie out of the blue actually. I was searching through the fridge and came up with a "Mystery Box" of ingredients to work with. This is the result. Fresh Poblanos are halved and filled with a mixture of rice, shrimp, chicken and exotic fruits, then baked to perfection with some pepper jack cheese and topped with a fresh and spicy pico that I made from the left over veggies. It's filling, big on flavor and spice and sure to satisfy your cravings.
