Chicken and poblano bites are a delicious finger food option for parties or whenever you have guests!

Who doesn't love finger food? Anything bite-sized or on a stick is always popular, and these cheesy chicken and poblano bites are no exception. Don't be fooled by the poblano peppers; these are not spicy but the peppers do add a dash of taste. Add any other ingredients like red bell peppers or even chorizo. Why not?

If you do want them to be a bit spicy, then replace the poblanos with jalapeños or for a SUPER spicy version, replace with serrano peppers.
