Poblano peppers stuffed with black beans, cheese and cornmeal, from Martha Stewart Everyday Food, April 2008. I've mostly just stolen this recipe from marthastewart.com, but added a few tips. If the poblanos are a little flattish, be sure to slice the peppers so that they they form a deep "pocket" to stuff. Be sure to use a reasonably good cheese. If you can't find good quality pepper jack, use plain Monterey Jack or cojack cheese and be sure to include the minced pepper. Cook time includes cooling time.
