Recipe Ingredients for poblano peppers stuffed with picadillo

0.5 serving ( 3 oz )(85 g) Beef, Ground, 85% Lean Meat / 15% Fat, Crumbles
1 serving whole poblano pepper
0.25 cup Potatoes, Boiled
0.25 cup slices Carrots
1 medium whole (2-3/5" dia)(123 g) Tomatoes, Red, Ripe
1 tbsp chopped Onions
1 clove Garlic
0.5 serving In Adobo Sauce Chipotle Peppers

Recipe Directions for poblano peppers stuffed with picadillo

  1. Put the poblano chiles straight into a fairly high flame or under a broiler and let the skin blister and burn. Turn the chiles from time to time so they do not get overcooked or burn right through

  2. Wrap the chiles in a damp cloth or plastic bag and leave them for about 20 minutes. The burned skin will then flake off very easily and the flesh will become a little more cooked in the steam. Make a slit in the side of each chili and carefully remove the seeds and veins. Be careful to leave the top of the chili, the part around the base of the stem, intact. (If the chilies are too hot - picante, let them soak in a mild vinegar and water solution for about 30 minutes.) Rinse the chilies and pat them dry.

  3. Cut the carrots and the potatoes in small cubes.

  4. Put the tomato, onion, garlic, chipotle pepper, salt and pepper in a blender (if to thick, you may add water or chicken broth) liquify the mixture.

  5. Prepare the Picadillo, put oil in a pan and cook the ground beef and the pork meat (chopped) until they´re almost done, add the sauce and the potatoes and carrots. (cover and cook over medium heat)

  6. when the picadillo is done, stuff the chile poblano with it, put a slice of cheese (muenster-style, optional) and place the stuffed pepper in the oven until the cheese is melted (or the pepper gets warm enough)

  7. enjoy it with some white rice :)
