Polenta-Stuffed Poblano Peppers

Ever since the economic atmosphere went down the drain, we have been keeping an eye out for low-cost recipes. This one comes from Real Simple - we liked this a lot! The poblanos are just spicy enough that you know it, and the polenta is smooth, creamy and comforting - I use regular cornmeal and it turns out just fine.

ingredients

directions

  • Heat broiler. On a rimmed broiler-proof baking sheet, toss the tomatoes, onion, and oil; turn the tomatoes cut-side down. Place the peppers on the sheet, cut-side down. Broil until tender and charred, stirring the onions and turning the tomatoes and peppers halfway through, 5 to 8 minutes.
  • Heat oven to 400°F In a food processor, puree the tomatoes, onion, cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper until smooth. Spread half the sauce in a 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Arrange the peppers in the dish, cut-side up.
  • In a medium saucepan, bring 2 1/4 cups water to a boil. Add 1/2 teaspoon salt. Gradually whisk in the polenta. Cook, whisking constantly, until thickened, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in the corn, cheese, and all but 2 tablespoons of the scallions.
  • Divide the polenta among the peppers. Top with the remaining sauce and bake until heated through, 5 to 10 minutes. Sprinkle with the remaining scallions before serving.

    This was a tasty way to use 4 poblano peppers in our CSA box this week. I stuffed with the polenta and simple shredded cheese. The sauce was tasty and the whole thing very low in fat. A great way to increase your vegetable intake!
