Stuffed Poblano Peppers

Recipe by Catherine Neville

Yield | 6 servings |

  • 6 poblano peppers
  • grapeseed oil
  • 1 large white onion, diced
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can chopped tomatoes
  • 1 small can green chiles
  • 1 small can jalapeños, optional
  • Chihuahua cheese, shredded
  • 1 bunch green onions, sliced
  • 1 bunch cilantro, chopped

| Preparation | Place peppers over a gas flame or under the broiler and blister briefly then place the peppers in a bag to steam. Peel skin off of the peppers, slice open on one side and remove seeds, leaving stems intact. Set aside.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In a large skillet, heat a bit of the grapeseed oil and saute onion briefly, then add garlic and cook until fragrant, about a minute. Add ground beef to the pan and cook until nicely browned, seasoning with salt and pepper to taste. Drain off any fat and put beef mixture in a large bowl.

Mix the black beans, tomato, chiles and jalapenos into the beef. Taste and adjust seasoning. Stir in a handful of cheese, half of the green onions and half of the cilantro.

Prepare a 9-by-13-inch baking dish with a light coat of grapeseed oil. Place the peppers in the dish and then stuff the peppers with the beef mixture. Top peppers with a generous amount of cheese, sprinkle with remaining green onions and bake until golden and bubbly, about 20 minutes. Top with cilantro and serve.
