Recipe: Stuffed Poblano Pepper

This is quite possibly one of the simplest yet most scrumptious lunches that I like to throw together sometimes for lunch.  (Toss in a side of rice and you've got yourself a no-stress dinner!)  Here's what you need:

Poblano Pepper
Refried Black Beans
Rotel or Salsa
Shredded Cheese (or whatever kind you like!)

1. Remove the cap from the pepper and cut straight down the length so that you'll have two long halves. Remove any seeds that may be left inside.
2. Fill the cavities with the refried beans and top them with Rotel or salsa.  Microwave for 1 minute.
3. Top with cheese and microwave for 30 to 60 seconds.  Just enough to melt the cheese.

Easy as 1-2-3 right!?  Enjoy!

Spiciness will vary with individual peppers.

  2. I found a yummy looking recipe for stuffed bell peppers, I'm gonna try stuff them with brown rice and pinto beans

  3. OMG that look so amazing! I've actually never had a poblano pepper before. Are they spicy or more like bell peppers?

    1. I tried them for the first time last year and I really like them a lot. I'd say they're definitely spicier than bell peppers. The spiciness varies with individual peppers...but the one I made for this photo was SUPER spicy. eyes were tearing up a bit. They're delicious though!

  4. Wow! Super simple and looks delicious. Definitely trying this!
