Stuffed poblanos

18 Aug

Some beautiful poblano peppers arrived in our fresh box. I had no ideas for what to do with them! Last time I had poblanos I had a recipe fail. I decided to try something different this time. These came out yummy.


Stuffed poblanos
adapted from myrecipes


6 poblano chile peppers
1 pound extra-lean ground beef
1 chopped onion
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 (15-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 cup picante sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 cup shredded Mexican cheese
Cooking spray


Preheat oven to 350.
Cut a lengthwise slit in one side of each pepper; discard seeds and membranes. Place peppers on a paper towel in microwave oven. Microwave at HIGH 3 minutes or until peppers are hot and beginning to soften. Set aside to cool.
Cook beef, onion, and garlic in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until browned; stir to crumble. Drain well; return meat mixture to pan.
Add beans and next 3 ingredients to pan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer, uncovered, 5 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in cilantro.
Open peppers; fill with bean mixture, and top with cheese.
Place peppers on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray. cook 10-15 minutes or until peppers are tender and cheese melts.
