* If Poblano and jalapeno peppers are not available, green chillies can be chopped fine and added
* I am sure, corn tortillas are available in India, otherwise, you can add 2 cups of crushed tortilla chips
*Doubt whether fire roasted tomatoes and crushed tomatoes are available in India. For fire roasted tomatoes, we can nicely saute tomatoes and then puree them. For crushed tomatoes, you can grate the tomatoes.
