We've borrowed the best Mexican flavors and ingredients for this quick scramble. Poblano peppers can vary widely, but in general they have a medium level of spiciness. If you can't find them, green bell peppers can be substituted; to replace the heat of the poblanos, add a minced jalapeno pepper. Make it a Meal: For supper, serve with a side of black beans; for brunch, with eggs and corn tortillas.

Even my skeptic teenager wanted more!

Excellent vegetarian gluten free dinner choice. Wonderful variety of favors and textures. My family of 6 children and a husband asked that I include this meal as a regular menu item for our family dinners. I highly recommend this dish!

Lots of flavor

This dish was delicious! I used red and orange bell peppers because that is what I had on hand. We did not top it with avocados or pepitas because we didn't have them. I think that they would have been wonderful additions! My 10 month old and my 4 year old also enjoyed it. To add some heat my husband and I put some chipotle tabasco on top and that just made it all the better. I made some black beans as a side and they were good mixed in with the dish so next time I might add black beans or pinto beans when I put in the tomatoes.

This was very good and very filling. I made it as written, using Cabot reduced-fat cheddar with peppers. My only very slight complaint is that the mixture got a little goopier than I expected. Next time I would probably add the tomatoes at the very end and just heat through so that they do not release too much water into the polenta crumbles.
