This deconstructed version of a chile relleno turned sandwich packs some heat and an ooey-gooey filling. We like the flavor of sourdough, but any kind of bread will work well. Serve with: Coleslaw and sliced pineapple.

"Fantastic! After reading other reviews I added 1/2 tsp of cumin and 1/2 tsp of chile powder to the bean mixture. I also broiled the peppers to give them more flavor. The sandwiches turned out super delicious and I will be making them...

We made a few modifications based on what was on hand, and this recipe was still great! Normally I'm against reviewing a recipe after you've changed it, but this is a great recipe to use what you have available. We used chipotle chilis in adobo sauce, and lemon yogurt (which was not very sweet). It was great! I look forward to trying it with the poblanos next time.

Loved it!

My whole family loved this! I will make it again and pass it along! Very simple to make, fast, and cheap as well.

Different and healthy

I used jalapeno peppers as well as the poblano peppers. I also made my own salsa which is very fiery and Greek yogurt. I added a little cumin, and smoked paprika an used a little more cilantro than called for and these sandwiches where great. I will be making these again.

supper easy an fast it toke no time at all to make these

Used jalapenos and greek yogurt. AMAZING!

great flavor, fun to add twist, simple, on hand ingredients
Good, but bland...

The recipe came out pretty well, but it was rather bland. My boyfriend suggested whipping up some guacamole to give it a little more flavor and spice. The guac really made the sandwich. Might make this again, but probably not often.
