    Hmmm...Poblanos...This is not New Mexican by any means. You HAVE got to try Hatch. Hatch is the ONLY way to have a REAL New Mexican green chile cheeseburger. Fresh roasted this time of year! Reminds me I need to pick some up...

    Interesting that you use oregano. I would've assumed you used cilantro. I'll have to try this.
