How to Make Stuffed Poblanos, Millie's


  • 1Blister peppers. I used my stovetop but you can do it under the broiler or on the grill.
  • 2Put in a covered bowl to sweat for a few minutes. (Makes the skin easy to come off)
  • 3* use gloves
    Peel skins off by scraping with dull side of knife or just use your hands and rub/pull off.
  • 4Make slit in center and clean out seeds. Set aside.
  • 5Shred or cube cheese and set aside.
  • 6Brown the ground chuck, drain and set aside.
  • 7In same skillet, add the oil and sauté the onions, bell pepper and jalapeno till onions are translucent, then add the minced garlic and sauté for another 30 seconds.
  • 8Return meat to skillet and add half the can of the green enchilada sauce, water, cumin, cayenne, tomato powder/paste. Add salt and pepper to taste. Reduce heat and simmer till liquid is absorbed.
  • 9Spray a baking pan with non-stick spray. Pour a small amount of enchilada sauce in the bottom.
  • 10Stuff peppers with meat mixture and then pour the rest of the enchilada sauce over the top. Bake on 350F for 45 minutes.
