Stuffed Poblano Peppers



4 fresh poblano peppers

1 Tbs olive oil

1 onion, diced

1 clove garlic, minced

1 lb lean ground beef

1 Tbs chili powder

1 tsp ground cumin

salt and ground black pepper to taste

4 thin slices shredded cheddar cheese slice shredded Monterey Jack cheese

1 (15 oz) can enchilada sauce aluminum foil

1/4 cup grated cheddar cheese


1. Hold poblano peppers directly over a flame with a pair of tongs and turn until skins are charred. Let peppers cool. Leaving peppers as close to whole as possible, remove skins, seeds, membranes, and stems.

2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat; stir in onion and garlic. Cook and stir until onion is soft and translucent about 5 minutes. Add ground beef; cook and stir beef in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to7 minutes. Mix in chili pepper, cumin, salt, and pepper.

3. Place peppers in a nonstick casserole dish. Insert a slice of cheddar cheese and a slice of Monterey Jack cheese into each pepper. Spoon some ground beef mixture into each pepper. Place the remaining beef on top of the peppers, and cover with enchilada sauce. Cover with aluminum foil.

4. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. Remove the foil and sprinkle grated cheddar cheese on top of the peppers. Bake until the peppers are bubbly and fragrant, another 45 minutes.
