How to Make Stuffed Poblano Peppers
- Prep the peppers. Wash the poblano peppers and place them on a baking sheet. Broil about 4-5 minutes on each side. You want to see the skin blacken and start to bubble. Remove the peppers from the oven, cover with a towel and let cool for about 10-15 minutes. Once the peppers are cool, peel off the skin and cut a slit on the top of the pepper under the stem and down the length of the pepper, removing the inside and seeds.
- Make the chicken mixtures. While the peppers are broiling, mix the chicken, sour cream, pico de gallo, lime juice, green onion and cilantro in mixing bowl.
- Stuff the peppers. Stuff each pepper with about 3/4 cup of the cheese and chicken mixture, then sprinkle remaining cheese on top of each pepper.
- Bake the peppers and serve. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes. Serve with garnish of fresh cilantro, green onions and sour cream on top.
