Good idea generator. I roasted the peppers on my grill. Grilled the marinated chicken and then finished the dish stove top. I was a bit short on chicken so added a can of black beans. Also added a bit of Mexican oregano to the marinade. Finished dish was not quite as beautiful as the original but tasty!

I don't have ever have cream on hand. I put the roasted peppers and garlic in a shallow pan and added about 1/3 c fat free sour cream., mixed and heated gently. it was still delicious and heart healthy.

I made these tacos b/c the photo was so enticing. Followed the recipe but finished the sauce on the stovetop since I was eating them the following day. They were tasty but needed a little kick so I added 3 chipotles in adobo to the sauce and topped them with cilantro and avocado. Took the dish from ho-hum to fantastic!
