Stuffed Poblano Pepper


Brightly green inspiring herbs and veggies for this sweet heat dish! I love the Spring when all the yummy vegetables and herbs are surfacing and ready for us to eat and experiment with. This recipe was inspired by so many of them. This main dish goes well with Cilantro Lime-Pepper Rice and Cilantro Corn Bread Muffins.


5 large poblano peppers 
2 chicken breasts, diced
1/2 – 1 cup Sweet Heat Chefs Signature Sauce
4 T olive oil 
1 cup corn (fresh is best, but canned is fine, too)
1 can Dei Fratelli tomatoes 
Handful fresh cilantro, chopped 
salt and freshly ground black pepper 
1 cup jack cheese shredded 


  1. Place poblano peppers on a sheet pan and place under preheated broiler. Drizzle with olive oil and toss coating all sides.  Blacken all sides, then remove to a heat resistant safe bowl and cover with saran wrap; let sit for around 10-15 minutes.  This process is known as “sweating”. This sweats the skin so it is easily removed. Remove one pepper from bowl at a time and carefully remove blackened skin.  Cut a slit lengthwise down each pepper and carefully remove seeds (don’t worry about getting every last seed, just get the bulk of them).
  2. Marinate diced chicken breasts in Sweet Heat Chefs Signature Sauce for at least 10 minutes, but for an hour is desirable.  Preheat olive oil in skillet over medium-high heat and add chicken breasts cooking thoroughly.
  3. Add black beans, corn, tomatoes and cilantro, salt and pepper to chicken mixing thoroughly and heat through.
  4. Stuff each pepper with chicken mixture until completely full.  Top each pepper with jack cheese, and bake for 7 – 10 minutes in preheated 350 degree oven until heated through and cheese is melted.

  3. Thank you peppermeister! I decided to grow a Pablano plant this year, unfortunately my 2 year old son decided to pull all the leaves off of it so I don’t think we will get any 😦 Maybe next year! SO SO SO love charred peppers! Glad you enjoyed the post!

  4. Beautiful pics! I love the taste of roasted peppers. The first time I grew a poblano plant, I was not crazy about the taste of the chiles but then I fire roasted them…. WOW, what a difference. Anaheim peppers also have an amazing roasted flavor.
