We're pros at the stuffed pepper game: a pepper roasted to near-tenderness, a flavorful filling, and lots of toppings: crispies, cheese, sauce, etc… We've upped our game here, with a tinga-inspired filling and a cilantro cream sauce, too (plus tortillas for textural contrast). The stuffed pepper game is the best game, and this dinner is the result.

Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • If using Impossible burger, follow same instructions as ground beef in Step 3, breaking up burger until heated through, 4-6 minutes.

  • If using chicken breasts, pat dry and, on a separate cutting board, cut into 1” dice. Follow same instructions as ground beef in Step 3, stirring occasionally until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes.

  • If using ground pork, follow same instructions as ground beef in Step 3, breaking up meat until no pink remains and pork reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Core tomato and cut into ¼" dice. Mince cilantro, leaves and stems. Halve and peel onion. Cut halves into ¼" dice. Halve poblano peppers lengthwise, stem, and remove seeds. Poblano peppers can vary in spice level; most are mild, but a few can be quite hot. Wash hands and cutting board after prepping.

  2. 2

    Start the Peppers

    Place poblanos on prepared baking sheet, cut side down. Spray peppers with cooking spray and top with a pinch of salt. Roast in hot oven until peppers are tender, but not completely cooked, 10-12 minutes. Don't worry if peppers char a bit; this adds flavor to the dish. While peppers roast, make filling.

  3. 3

    Make the Filling

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add ground beef and onion to hot, dry pan. Break up meat until no pink remains and beef reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 4-6 minutes. Stir in tomatoes, seasoning blend (to taste), ¼ tsp. salt, and salsa (to taste) until combined. Remove from burner.

  4. 4

    Finish the Peppers

    Carefully, flip poblanos cut side up and distribute filling evenly among halves. You may not use all the filling. Wipe pan clean and reserve. Roast in hot oven until heated through, 5-8 minutes. While peppers roast, make sauce.

  5. 5

    Make Sauce and Finish Dish

    Return pan used to cook filling to medium heat and add cream sauce base to hot pan. Bring to a boil. One boiling, stir in cilantro until combined. Remove from burner. Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping peppers with sauce and tortilla strips. Bon appétit!
