Recipe: Stuffed Poblano Pepper Boats (serves about 4 as a main dish)
4 Poblano peppers, stem and core removed and sliced in half lengthwise
1 lb ground beef or other ground meat
1 sweet potato, cooked, skinned and mashed
2 TBSP olive oil
1 small onion, diced
1 TBSP garlic salt
1 TBSP chili powder
3-4 green onions, diced
Heat oil in a large skillet, and preheat broiler in oven. Line a baking sheet with foil and place peppers skin side-up on the sheet. Lightly baste with olive oil and broil in oven for about 6 minutes. Flip over and cook another 5-6 minutes, until nicely browned:
While the peppers are cooking, add onion to heated skillet and cook until tender. Add meat and spices and cook for a few minutes until beginning to brown. Add cooked sweet potato, continue to stir and heat through. Remove from heat and add in green onions. Place each pepper, skin side-down, into a baking dish. Fill each half with the meat mixture, cover the dish with aluminum foil and bake in a 350 degree oven for about 20 minutes.
Note: For some added flavor, sprinkle with cheese, cilantro, or any other yummy topping!
