Stuffed Poblano Peppers

Stuffed Poblano Peppers
Makes 1 stuffed pepper

1 whole fresh poblano pepper. Wash, remove cap and seeds.
1 oz cream cheese softened
¼ cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 slices cooked bacon chopped
3oz 93% lean ground beef
Hefty pinch of spice blend for tacos (chili powder, cumin, oregaon, salt, pepper, garlic powder)

Mix cream cheese, cheese, bacon, ground beef and seasonings well then stuff into the pepper. Roll up tighyly in foil and place in a casserole dish. Bake at 350f for apporx 25 minutes or until cooked through.
*I'm sure you could microwave this. I would put it in a small, covered dish and microwave at ½ power for 5-6 minutes, then at full power for 3-4.

Are poblanos as hot as jalapenos? They are bigger, right?

They're not nearly as hot as jalapenos - most of them are quite mild.

They're long, dark green, glossy, beautiful peppers, pointy at one end and bigger at the other end - perfect for stuffing!

Also the ones they usually make chiles rellenos with.

I was thinking you could make 4 of these, put them in a casserole and maybe top with enchilada sauce and cheese. (I'd count 6 servings of that many though lol)

I love stuffed poblanos! I love spicy food, so this is right up my alley! I usually leave some of the seeds in to retain some of the heat.

Dottie,your recipe sounds great. I was just viewing a video on youtube by bowulf of a recipe similar to this baked in the oven. He calls it "Low Carb Roasted Peppers". He broiled 4 poblano peppers and peeled the skin off before opening them up and seeding them, stuffed with a gr. meat mixture similar to yours - except he cooked it up like taco meat. He then covered them with cheese in a casserole and baked it. It really looks good, also. I would give the recipe, except I would have to type it all out (too lazy to do that!)as there is no written recipe except for on the youtube screen which I copied. Here is a link to the video:

1/4 cup diced tomatoes (optional)

1. Brown Ground Beef, Drain, and add Taco Seasoning
2. Roast Peppers on Top Shelf under broiler, rotating every 2-3 minutes
3. Add Salsa, Cream, and Cheese to ground beef, and heat until cheese is melted.
4. Remove Peppers from Oven, and peel loosened skin off peppers. Remove Stem core and seeds from inside.
5. Add meat mixture to roasted peppers, and cover with 1-2 oz of Shredded Cheese
6. Bake for 20 minutes or until cheese is golden brown.

Thanks for this info, Kent. I never did know I could do that. I'm so glad to know that I don't have to try to catch the recipes off the video anymore. I just cut and pasted this recipe into my computer.

BTW, I really do appreciate all the time and effort you take to provide these videos. Some of them are recipes I've read and even saved from LindaSue and Jennifer, etc. but I really like seeing exactly how they are put together - it makes me more likely to want to try them if I see someone preparing them. And...congratulations on your 211 lbs weight loss!
