Chicken Stuffed Roasted Poblano Peppers


I wanted something mexican tasting today, and I wanted to keep roasting vegetables. So, I took my roasted tomato salsa, mixed it with chicken and put it on top of roasted poblano peppers. Of course I covered it with freshly shredded monterey jack cheese and stuck in back into the oven until it was all bubbly and delicious. So good!
