We love Mexican food, it's my sweeties favorite, so thought this might be a good way to get him to eat more veggies and make something he would love too.
Note*
My friend Nelda suggested rubbing the peppers first with olive oil and baking them for 5 minutes or so unfilled so the peppers get done. Thanks Nelda!

How to Make Poblanos stuffed with chorizo

Step-by-Step

  1. Wash and pat dry poblanos, slice off top part enough to make stuffing easy.
    Save the tops for salads and finely dice about 3 tablespoons for the filling.
  2. Dice the onion, chop the cilantro, dice the pepper jack and set aside.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a large saucier and saute the onion til translucent, add garlic and cook a minute more, crumble in the chorizo and cook until cooked through, put in a large bowl.
  4. Add in everything else but 4 slices of pepper jack and enchilada sauce,reserving 4 slices of pepper jack to melt on top, and the enchilada sauce which is drizzled over the top. I also has a little grated cheddar left over and it was a nice addition for color
  5. Drizzle the enchilada sauce over the top. Bake in a 350° oven for 40 minutes or until bubbly and hot, last 10 minutes add reserved pepper jack to melt.
