You guys know I love a good 30-minute meal! Even those these Sloppy Joe Stuffed Poblano Peppers look impressive, they actually do come together in 30 minutes.

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.

Easy stuffed peppers is also a tasty recipe.

A few simple ingredients make this recipe quick, easy and delicious. It’s an easy weeknight dinner solution, we like to call it Manwich Monday!

It is a great way for you to start your week, with a tasty, easy-to-make family meal around the dinner table! Manwich is a meatless, spicy and hearty sauce with a sweet and tangy taste and it also has the kid-stopping power, as your children will need both hands to enjoy this messy-licious treat, keeping them away from video games or texting! Manwich is a great, easy, quality ingredient that you can use to bring your family’s attention back to mealtime and away from the everyday distractions. It comes in Manwich Original, Manwich Bold, and Manwich Thick & Chunky.

I used Manwich Thick & Chunky for this recipe, but you can use any of the three flavors.

How to peel a poblano pepper

  1. Preheat the oven broiler on high. Position an oven rack about 4 inches from the broiler. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with foil.
  2. Place the poblanos on a cooking sheet and set under the broiler.
  3. 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.
  4. Remove peppers from heat and place in a plastic zip-top bag for 5 to 10 minutes.
  5. Allow peppers to cool enough for you to handle.
  6. Remove peppers from bag and remove blackened skin.
  7. Cut each poblano pepper open, from stem to tip, and remove seeds, set aside.

 If you’ve been a long-time reader, you know I have worked with Manwich before. I have previously developed these recipes Sloppy Joe Wonton Cups, a dip, quesadilla and slider, and One Pot Cheesy Chicken Pasta.
