My Co-Workers love to share their garden veggies here at the station. Yesterday, someone left us Poblano Peppers...Red and beautiful dark green. What better to make than a delicious twist on chocolate chip cookies?

Preheat oven to 350.  Use a hand mixer to cream together butter and sugar until smooth.  Beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in vanilla.  Stir in flour, baking soda and salt; then mix in chocolate chips and finely, finely, finely chopped peppers.  Drop dough in large spoonfuls onto an un-greased baking sheet. Bake until cookies begin to brown, about 10 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
