We love stuffed peppers and we aren't afraid to say it. We'll shout it from the rooftops. We'll write it in the sky among the clouds. We'll have John Cusack play it in a boom box he's raising above his head outside some girl's home. Okay, we'll do none of those things. Instead, we'll offer you this meal: tender poblanos filled to the brim with chicken, corn, and tomatoes. Cheddar cheese, tortilla strips, and a chive sour cream provide a salty, crunchy yet soothing garnish. No skywriting, no old 80s movie, no shouting: Just delicious flavors and easy preparation for your best dinner this week.

Recipe Steps

You Will Need

  • Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Cooking Spray
  • 1 Baking Sheet
  • 1 Mixing Bowl
  • 1 Medium Non-Stick Pan

Before You Cook

  • Step 1 - Roast the Poblanos
    1

    Roast the Poblanos

    Halve poblanos lengthwise, removing seeds and ribs. Place poblanos on prepared baking sheet, cut side up. Drizzle with 1 tsp. olive oil and a pinch of salt. Massage oil into poblanos. Roast in hot oven until poblanos are tender, but not completely cooked, 10-12 minutes. Set aside. Don't worry if poblanos char a bit; this adds flavor to the dish. While poblanos roast, prepare ingredients.

  • Step 2 - Prepare the Ingredients
    2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Mince chives. Remove husk from corn and carefully remove kernels from cob. Core tomato and cut into ½" dice. Pat chicken dry and, on a separate cutting board, cut into 1" dice. Place chives and sour cream in a mixing bowl and combine. Set aside.

  • Step 3 - Cook the Filling

    Cook the Filling

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add 1 Tbsp. olive oil and diced chicken to hot pan. Stir occasionally until lightly browned, 3-5 minutes. Stir in chipotle seasoning, corn, tomatoes, ½ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Cook until tomatoes are slightly softened, 1-3 minutes. Remove from burner. Chicken will finish cooking in a later step.

  • Step 4 - Fill and Roast the Poblanos
