Stuffed Poblano Pepper Recipe

Because a little spice is my favorite to enjoy during the summer months this Cauliflower Chorizo Stuffed Poblano Pepper recipe is a favorite.  In the recipe share below you will find a few basic ingredients that can be considered a Keto friendly meal.   In addition to being super tasty, this recipe is super easy to make.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups of cauliflower ( freezer department steamable are perfect!)
  • 1/2 cup of beef chorizo
  • 4 Poblano Peppers (roasted)
  • 1/2 cup of red enchilada sauce
  • 1/2 cup of queso fresco shredded cheese
  • lettuce, onion and tomato for garnish

Directions

  1. Carefully roast the poblano peppers on a fire stove top or grill.  You can use an air fryer to roast peppers setting the rack at the top of the oven at the highest heat setting.  DO NOT walk away from this process.
  2. Set roasted pepper aside to cool while preparing the filling.  Once the pepper is cool cut the top 1/8 of the pepper including the stem off.  Save pepper at top for mixture.
  3. Fry up the chorizo on the stovetop using your favorite medium size skillet.
  4. In the microwave follow the directions of steamed cauliflower removing 3/4 the way through cook time.  The vegetable can be cold so you can easily chop it up.
  5. After chopping up the cauliflower add to the chorizo mix.  Gently toss together on medium heat so the vegetable takes on the chorizo seasoning.
  6. push to the side of the skillet adding the chopped tops of the poblano pepper.  Gently saute them in the sauce of the pan from the chorizo.  Once soft stir into the meat mixture.
  7. Scoop the filling mix into the pepper before laying it in a casserole pan.   Pour red enchilada sauce over the peppers before adding cheese.
  8. Bake in oven at 400*F for about 5-10 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbling.  You can use an electric oven air fryer for this step just adjust the time.
  9. Garnish with lettuce, onion, and tomato on the side to make a meal.

About the Poblano Pepper

anaheim peppers are easy to grow from seed

A poblano pepper commonly known for the chiles rellenos recipe.  The pepper is mild chile that is also called ancho or chile ancho in dried form.  Poblano peppers are easy to grow in my Ohio hardiness zone during the summer season.  Over the past few years, a 4-5 pack of poblano peppers has been available at Walmart’s grocery department at a reasonable price basically year-round! In contrast to the Anaheim pepper the Pablano pepper has a little spice to it. One of my favorite ways to enjoy this pepper is by stuffing them with seasonal favorites like the Cauliflower Chorizo recipe here!
