Poblanos stuffed with chorizo

Jane Whittaker


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.
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!
