Chorizo Stuffed Poblano Peppers (Can Sub Sweet Peppers)

Chorizo Stuffed Poblano Peppers (Can Sub Sweet Peppers) created by gailanng

I love the smokey flavor of poblanos, but sweet peppers may be substituted. Adjust the amount of sweet peppers used if very large. Poblanos are smaller. Don't leave off a dollop of sour cream for it mellows the taste. A dish to be ready in 30 minutes for your own fiesta. From Home Made Simple.

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Saute chorizo for 6-8 minutes, gently breaking it up with a wooden spoon.
  • Stir in onions, garlic and corn. Cook for 2-3 more minutes, then add tomato paste, oregano, cilantro and cumin. Stir until well combined.
  • Mix in Cotija cheese, then remove from heat. Taste and season with salt and pepper as needed.
  • Slice poblano peppers lengthwise, keeping the stem intact and remove seeds. Spoon chorizo mixture into peppers and sprinkle with shredded cheese.
  • Arrange stuffed peppers in a baking dish. Add to the bottom of the pan, 2 tablespoons water. Grease a sheet of foil with oil on the underside. Place foil over baking dish, sealing tightly. Bake in a preheated oven for 20 minutes. Carefully remove foil (beware steam build-up) and continue to bake 15-20 minutes. Serve with dollops of sour cream.

    Chopped a red pepper and one pablano pepper into to it. I don’t cook onions so left them out. Added garlic infused olive oil to start frying the chorizo in. I can’t eat onions and garlic. Used canned tomato sauce instead of paste. Cooked a Yukon gold potato and chopped it up and added with the cheese. I sprinkled with the shredded cheese when I took the foil off. Delicious.

    Followed the recipe other than swapping 3/4 tablespoon dried cilantro for fresh. From ingredient options Cotija & Monterey Jack cheeses, 7 green poblanos (halved) and 1 large red pepper (quartered) were used. These were a huge success! Served with brown rice and black beans. Can't wait to make it again with both/either pepper.
