Fancy Stuffed Hatch Chiles Dinner

I saw the hatch peppers out at the grocery store and changed all my dinner ideas on the spot. I love these peppers, they have a little heat to them but not too much and I love their wonky shapes. This turned out to be a very simple dinner, nothing really needed to be rushed, not many things to do at one time, very big winner. It took me about 30 minutes start to finish. Also it was beautiful on the plate! Most importantly the dish was so delicious!! so simple Joshua's making it next time :)
