I took the liberty of making a few small adjustments to this recipe. Before I began preparing the chiles, I browned about 0.7 lbs of ground beef. Before I added the cheese (I used oaxaca instead of cotija, and it worked beautifully), I added a little of the beef to each chile. I roughly chopped the onion instead of slicing it (just a preference), and it tasted nearly identical to the chiles I get in my favorite Mexican restaurant! (Oh, just a warning...if you're not used to working with chiles, you may want to wear disposable gloves. On the scale of hotness, poblanos aren't that bad, but can still cause some discomfort if you get a hot one and have sensitive skin and/or eyes.) This recipe is a winner, and I'm sure I'll make it again (perhaps adding a little cilantro to the tomato/onion/sour cream/cumin mixture). Yumm-oh!
