Getting skin off poblanos was the hardest part of this recipe! These are the changes I made and it was delish!! I chopped whole onion, sautéed with butter then added flour. I used 2 cans of chicken breast (this was all I had). I added cayenne pepper at the end along with spices called for. Instead of pepper jack, I used 8oz of velveeta and about a cup of sharp cheddar. Really good soup!!

It made my home smell wonderful! Used 7 pears but did not double topping. Wouldn't change a thing!

This was great!! I made this with pears and apples - added a little more cinnamon, and I sprinkled coconut and almond pieces on the top - wonderful! Very easy recipe with a great result. I served it with runny custard sauce, whipped cream and raspberries on top. It became a special dessert with special friends over.

I would definitely not have so much maple syrup next time. Next time I'll do 1/4 cup. Otherwise it was pretty great!

This was very good - I cannot have wheat so I added some finely chopped pecans and ground flaxseed meal to the topping recipe as a sub for the wheat. I did not use as much butter in the topping, and I used mostly Truvia w/ about a tablespoon of brown sugar as I am trying to limit sugars as well. Thanks for posting. And for those purists - technically, I think this would be considered a "crisp", not a "cobbler", but it's worth making what ever you call it. :)

I made this recipe using pears. I followed the recipe as written and it was perfect. My hubby thought is was the best. Very, very good.

This has become one of my most requested dishes! Easy and yummy! I use gluten free flour on occasion for my gluten free friends and there is no difference in taste. Love it!

This was delicious! Next time I will definitely use less maple syrup to cut some of the sweetness. Otherwise it is a keeper. I used a combination of apples and pears. I agree it is more of a crisp than a cobbler.
