Sloppy Joe Stuffed Poblano Peppers
The part of this recipe that takes the longest is removing the skin from the poblano peppers. I start that process first and by the time the meat is cooked the peppers are ready. If you’re not familiar with poblano peppers, there’s a really thin skin on the outside that must be removed. If you don’t want to worry about it, you can use green, red, yellow or orange bell peppers for this recipe.
How to peel a poblano pepper
- Preheat the oven broiler on high. Position an oven rack about 4 inches from the broiler. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with foil.
- Place the poblanos on a cooking sheet and set under broiler.
- Turn the peppers after 3-4 minutes, once they start to blister and turn black. Keep an eye on the peppers, this happens quickly. Peppers are done when all sides are blackened and blistered.
- Remove peppers from heat and place in a plastic zip-top bag for 5 to 10 minutes.
- Allow peppers to cool enough for you to handle.
- Remove peppers from bag and remove blackened skin.
- Cut each poblano pepper open, from stem to tip and remove seeds, set aside.
