I'm not sure if I know all my chilies, but I think I use
Anaheim Chilies. After I roast them under the broiler
turning them several times then I put them in a plastic
bag to steam in their own heat. A few minutes later I
peal them one at a time under a cold running tap. I don't
use gloves but I am careful where I put my hands later.

We also top the dish off with Salsa and sour cream.
