Refried Bean Stuffed Poblanos W/ Cheese

Refried Bean Stuffed Poblanos W/ Cheese created by ColoradoCooking

I found this one on the Cooking Light website and I can't wait to try it! Use reduced fat and reduced sodium ingredients to make this as healthy as possible. You can also add chicken to change this from a vegetarian to a carnivore dish.

Ready In:
8mins
Serves:
Units:

ingredients

  • 4 medium poblano chiles, halved and seeded (you can also use jalapenos)
  • 1 (16 ounce) can fat-free refried beans
  • 1 (8 7/8 ounce) envelope microwaveable cooked long-grain rice (such as Uncle Ben's Original Ready Rice)
  • 12 cup picante sauce
  • 1 cup reduced-fat Mexican cheese blend, shredded
  • chopped fresh cilantro (optional)

directions

  • Place chile halves, cut sides up, on a round microwave-safe plate.
  • Cover with wax paper; microwave at HIGH 3 minutes.
  • While chiles cook, combine beans, rice, and picante sauce in a medium bowl, stirring well. (This is where you would add the chicken if using).
  • Spoon bean mixture evenly into chile halves.
  • Cover with wax paper; microwave at HIGH 2 minutes.
  • Uncover chiles, sprinkle each half with 2 tablespoons cheese, and microwave at HIGH 1 to 2 minutes or until cheese melts.
  • Sprinkle evenly with cilantro, if desired.

    These were very yummy. They had a nice spiciness. I softened them in the microwave for 5 minutes, then filled and baked at 375° for about 20 minutes. I knew they would be better baked than nuked! I also used a Mexican Rice because it has more flavor than plain!

    So good! I added some corn for crunch, which I thought was a great addition. I microwaved the pepper the first 3 minutes as instructed but I baked the filled pepper in the oven. Great lunch!
