Roast the poblanos over an open flame, turning regularly until completely charred.  (If you don’t have a gas stove you can use a broiler) The skin should be blackened and bubbly. Place the poblanos in a plastic bag, tie the bag closed and let sit for about 10 minutes.  Remove the chiles from the bag and peel off the charred skin and remove the stem and seeds.  Set aside.

Heat oil in a pan and sauté the onion until transparent.
