"Mexican" Style Stuffed Poblano Peppers
My son asked for stuffed peppers the other day so I thought I would try something new, something with poblano peppers because I really like the flavor of poblanos. These were a hit with the kids!
3 large Poblano Peppers
1 small Poblano pepper, chopped
1/2 onion, chopped
3/4 cup partly cooked rice
10 oz. lean ground beef
1/2 cup frozen corn
3 oz. grated cheese of choice, I did 50/50 cheddar and pepper jack.
1 jar green salsa
1 teaspoon ground chipotle pepper
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion power
salt and pepper
In a large skillet saute the onions and chopped poblano until onions are translucent. Add the ground beef to the skillet and chip as it cooks to make small pieces. Turn off heat once beef is just about done and add the spices, 1/2 of the green salsa, corn, rice and cheese, stir to combine.
Cut the 3 large in half and remove the seeds and any white membrane stuff. Stuff the peppers with the ground beef stuffing and place in a oven proof dish. Once all peppers are stuffed add the remaining green salsa on and around the peppers. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 20 minutes covered, uncover and bake for another 15 minutes.
I served with plain low fat yogurt.
