These are so delicious and I love the taste of the Poblano pepper. I used to make this recipe using bell pepper. Either way, it is delicious.

These stuffed poblano peppers aren't overly spicy. They are packed with flavor from the spicy sausage, salty Parmesan cheese, creamy cream cheese, and hearty brown rice. Wrapping them in bacon adds a lovely smokiness to the peppers. Simple to make, these could be served as a main or side dish.
