A note about serious food allergies

Ah, Buffalo chicken; it's an American tradition at this point, as big a part of our national cuisine as apple pie. (More so… when's the last time you had apple pie? And when's the last time you had Buffalo wings? Thought so.) We've changed it up a bit here, stuffing peppers to the brim with the unmistakable spice and tang (with a hint of ranch for good measure), then topped with a blue cheese cream for some funky cooldown. Raise the flag; these Buffalo beauties are red, white, and blue delicious. Tip: To remove the core of a tomato, carefully cut a shallow circle around the stem with a small knife, then remove circle.

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 ground beef, follow same instructions as chicken in Step 2, adding a pinch of salt and pepper and stirring occasionally, breaking up meat, until no pink remains, 4-6 minutes. Follow same instructions as chicken in Steps 3 and 4.

  • If using shrimp, follow same instructions as chicken in Step 2. Add shrimp to hot pan and cook undisturbed until seared on one side, 2-3 minutes. Flip, and cook until shrimp reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 1-2 minutes. Follow same instruction as chicken in Step 3. In Step 4, follow same instructions and bake in hot oven, 4-6 minutes.

  1. 1

    Roast the Poblanos

    Halve poblanos lengthwise, removing seeds and ribs.

    Place poblanos on prepared baking sheet, cut side down. Drizzle with 1 tsp. olive oil. Roast in hot oven until poblanos are tender, but not completely cooked, 10-12 minutes.

    Don't worry if poblanos char a bit, char will only add flavor.

    While poblanos roast, prepare ingredients.

  2. 2

    Prepare Ingredients and Cook Chicken

    Core tomato and cut into 1/2" dice.

    Trim and thinly slice green onions on an angle.

    Pat chicken breasts dry and, on a separate cutting board, cut into 1" dice.

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add diced chicken to hot pan and stir occasionally until chicken browns and reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 5-7 minutes.

    Remove from burner.

  3. 3

    Make Filling and Make Blue Cheese Cream

    Combine cooked chicken, tomato, cheddar-jack cheese, green onions (reserve a pinch for garnish), and ranch seasoning in a mixing bowl. Stir in hot sauce (to taste).

    In another mixing bowl, combine sour cream and blue cheese. Set aside.

  4. 4

    Fill and Roast the Poblanos

    Carefully, flip poblanos to cut side up. Divide filling equally between poblanos.

    Roast again until cheese is melted, 8-10 minutes.

    If using bacon, line a plate with a paper towel. Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add bacon to hot pan. Flip occasionally until crisp, 6-8 minutes. Transfer to towel-lined plate. When cool enough to handle, crumble and add to roasted peppers.

  5. 5

    Finish the Dish
