Inside Out Stuffed Poblanos

yummy-inside-out-stuffed-poblanos

One of my awesome readers mentioned they’d like to see more recipes that weren’t chicken, so I thought I’d share this one!  With Autumn quickly upon us, this recipe is just perfect for those cool evenings and the flavor is fabulous!  I found that Poblanos were far too delicate for me to make stuffed peppers with them, but this turned out amazingly well!

Printable on the bottom of this post.

Ingredients

  • 5 Poblano Peppers
  • 2 c Chopped Onions
  • 2 Tbsp Minced Garlic
  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 c cooked brown rice
  • 1 c corn
  • 1 can tomatoes
  • 1 Tbsp cumin
  • 1/4 c Lime juice
  • cheese, if desired
  1. Line cookie sheet with foil. Broil peppers for 6 minutes, turn over and broil 6 more minutes.
  2. Sauté onion with garlic, set aside.
  3. Cook ground turkey, drain.
  4. In a food processor or blender, combine ½ of onion mixture, tomatoes, cumin and lime juice. Blend until smooth.
  5. In a large bowl, mix 1 ½ c rice, ½ onions, gr beef, corn and part of the tomato mixture. Mix in some cheese if desired.
  6. Spray baking dish with non-stick spray, slice and seed peppers then spread them across the bottom of the pan.
  7. Spread meat mixture across peppers, top with tomato mixture.
  8. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.

*if you’d like to add cheese on top, add it about 4 minutes before the peppers are done.
