Expert Tips

  • You can purchase premade guacamole or, for the best results, add a little chopped onion, jalapeño and cilantro, along with a splash of lime juice and salt, to mashed avocados.
  • Poblano chiles can vary in heat, with some being as mild as green bell peppers and others being much hotter. If you enjoy some extra heat in your tortilla pockets, add a seeded, chopped jalapeño chile along with the poblanos and onions in this recipe.
  • Queso fresco, “fresh cheese” in Spanish, is a mild, salty and acidic cheese that’s perfect for crumbling over any number of dishes, from these Mushroom and Poblano Tortilla Pockets to enchiladas. Think of it as akin to goat cheese or feta in that it’s fresh and light. It’s also widely available in large grocery stores.
