Like more spicy flavor? Use more or hotter chilies.

Prepare fresh chiles by roasting 1 pound fresh green poblano chiles (about 4 whole peppers) either by placing them over a stovetop gas flame or by roasting under an oven broiler. Turn them frequently until all sides are charred black, about 7-10 minutes. Allow peppers to cool, about 15 minutes. Remove the stems and seeds and chop.
