Stuffed Poblano Peppers - Oh So Good !!!

Stuffed Peppers  - Oh So Good !!!

This post was in drafts since Thanksgiving, made it for Thanksgiving potluck . A perfect dish to feed crowd, can be prepped ahead, customized according to taste and a sure crowd pleaser. This could be a perfect recipe for your upcoming Super Bowl party.

I used Poblano peppers, which are very mild in taste and are quite meaty and easy to stuff.

Ingredients - Makes for about 12 servings

Half loaf of bread of your choice, I used sourdough bread which was about 2-3 days old.
1/2 a cup of Parsley,Cilantro
1/4 cup of Basil
tbsp of red pepper flakes (adjust accordingly)
1 cup of shredded three cheese mix (Mozzarella,Parmesan,Monterey Jack) you could use Feta or cheese of your choice
2 tbsp of Capers - I love CAPERS
Salt according to taste
1 cup of crushed dorrito's/chips for garnish as topping.
6 Poblano pepper slit in half and deseeded.
1 cup of store brought Marinara sauce.
1. Grind all the ingredients mentioned above except for Peppers and Marinara sauce.
2. Keep the mixture aside.

3. Slit  Poblano peppers in half length wise,deseed and clean the pepper and rub salt and allow them to stand for few minutes.

4. Now stuff the filling into the peppers
5. Repeat and fill the rest of the peppers with the filling.
6.Pre heat oven to 375 degrees, line a baking sheet with foil and place all the peppers into it.
7. Top the peppers with a tbsp or two of Marinara sauce.
8. Cover the baking sheet with foil.
9. Allow the peppers to bake in the over for about 45 minutes, adjust according to your oven setting, when you pass a knife through the pepper it should cut smoothly without resistance and that says done.

10.10. You can prep till here and freeze and then place into the oven when your guests arrive,makes for one less dish to prep on the big day.

11. Remove from heat sprinkle with crushed Tostito's /Dorrito's or chips and serve with a cold beverage.
Rest assured your guest s will love it  !!
