Stuffed Poblanos with pork and corn

My peppers are coming in nicely and the poblanos are perfect for stuffing!!  We’ve tried the stuffed with cheese and ground beef. Baked, grilled and pan fried. This is our favorite preparation – and its an easy and delicious way to use three different varieties.

Let’s get stuffin’ :

Start with the smoky flavors – Heat the grill – on medium heat, grill the poblanos, corn, bell pepper, onion and jalapeño. When they are lightly charred, remove from the grill and let them cool.

After the vegetables are cool enough to handle, remove the skins from all the peppers.

Cut the poblano in half and remove the stems and seeds. Place them in a heavy casserole dish, cut side up. These are the peppers that will get stuffed.

In a heavy skillet, heat the chorizo, then add the pork and cook until it’s browned. Be sure there is no pink in the pork.

When the meat mixture is done, put it evenly into each half of the poblano and wipe out the pan. Leave just a touch of the oils in the pan.

Carefully cut the kernels off the corn cob. Set aside.

Remove the stems, seeds and skins from the bell pepper and  jalapeño. Mince the jalapeño and chop the bell and the onion. Set aside.

Melt the butter in the same pan used for the meat-

Next add the vegetables and lightly sauté them until they are starting to sweat a little. Stir in the spices and cook for about 3 minutes.

Split the vegetable mixture evenly on top of the meat in the peppers.

Finish with the cheese and bake for about 30 minutes at 350 degrees –

Cook until the top is golden brown. The nearly burnt corners are the best part of the cheese!

Garnish with sliced avocado, a wedge of lime and chopped cilantro.

Serve with warm tortillas and salad on the side. It’s a delicious meal!
