Good RT or cold

Made this as described except that I used the juice of 1 lime made up to volume with cider vinegar. The chipotle in adobo and cumin renders most of the flavor but it still seems to need something - can't think what.

Comes together easily

I really liked this recipe and will make it again. Next time though, I will probably add a little lime juice to it

Easy, quick, and tasty
Just OK

It looked like a great recipe and had ingredients that I like but it was blah. I may make it again but if I do, it will be with lime instead of cider vinegar I think that might give it a brighter flavor.

Easy, Healthy
Flavorful easy and quick!

I doubled the adobo chili because we really like spice. This was great as a dinner with a few artisinal chiptole chips. My husband raved about it. Looked good and tasted good.

Easy, full of flavor
Perfect summer meal

This has been added to my list of favorite summer dishes. The cumin and cilantro and pepper give it a 'chili-flavored' flair that really pops this dish. I felt I needed a starch with it so I cooked up some jasmine rice for the side, which I ended up mixing in. Delicious! A must try!

easy, cool, very tasty

I have made this dish

I have made this dish numerous times and it is hands down the BEST DISH ever! Just perfect! It is sooooooo not blah. The poblano pepper gives it just enough heat and the chipotle chilis add that extra zest. Sooo yummy. Making it tonight AGAIN!
