Stuffed peppers are all about the healthy, right? After all, it's a vegetable we're stuffing here, not a calzone. Well, hold on to your socks, because we've put the classic flavors of cheeseburger in a pepper. From the ground beef to the cheese to the sweet dressing on top, this is a cheeseburger in all but bun. Healthy? Yes, but also delicious.

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 ground chicken, follow same instructions as ground beef in Step 3, breaking up until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes.

  • If using steak strips, separate into a single layer and pat dry. Follow same instructions as ground beef in Step 3, stirring occasionally until no pink remains and steak strips reach minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes.

  • If using pulled pork, coarsely chop. Excess pork fat will render while cooking and add flavor. Follow same instructions as ground beef in Step 3, breaking up pulled pork until heated through, 4-6 minutes.

  1. 1

    Start the Peppers

    Stem poblano peppers, halve, and remove seeds and ribs.

    Place poblanos on prepared baking sheet, cut side down. Spray peppers with cooking spray.

    Roast in hot oven until peppers are tender, 14-16 minutes.

    Don't worry if peppers char a bit; this adds flavor to the dish.

    While peppers roast, prepare ingredients.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Core tomatoes and cut into 1/4" dice.

    Coarsely chop pickles.

    Peel and mince shallot.

  3. 3

    Make the Filling

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 1/2 tsp. olive oil.

    Add ground beef, seasoned salt, and a pinch of salt and pepper to hot pan. Break up meat until no pink remains and beef reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 4-6 minutes.

    Add shallot and stir until combined, 30-60 seconds.

    Add half the tomatoes (reserve remaining for peppers), demi-glace, and 2 Tbsp. water. Stir occasionally until slightly thickened, 2-3 minutes.

    Remove from burner.

  4. 4

    Finish the Peppers

    Carefully, flip poblanos cut side up and distribute filling evenly among halves. Top with remaining tomatoes, then cheese.

    Roast again until cheese melts, 2-3 minutes.

  5. 5

    Finish the Dish

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping peppers with pickles and dressing. Bon appétit!
