Stuffed Poblanos Ingredients

How to Make Stuffed Poblano Peppers

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
