Notes: Fresh poblano chilies, often mislabeled pasillas, are easy to identify because they are very dark green. If you can't find poblanos, use green New Mexico chilies, which are also called California or Anaheim chilies. If making ahead, cover and refrigerate chilies up to 2 days; freeze to store longer.
