  1. 3 large poblano chiles
  2. 4 naan or 6 pocketless pita
  3. 2 cups shredded roasted chicken (12 ounces)
  4. 2 scallions, thinly sliced
  5. 1 1/2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese (6 ounces)
  6. 1/4 cup canola oil
  1. Roast the poblanos over a gas flame or under the broiler, turning, until charred; transfer to a bowl, cover with plastic wrap and let steam for 15 minutes. Peel, core, seed and thinly slice the chiles.
