CHORIZO + TURKEY STUFFED PEPPERS

Ingredients

  • 5 large or 10 small poblano peppers
  • 1 1/2 tbs avocado oil
  • 1 lb lean ground turkey
  • 1/2 lb ground chorizo
  • 1 small white onion, diced
  • 1 large jalapeño pepper, diced
  • 1 cup shredded Mexican blend cheese (I like Tillamook brand best)
  • 1/2 cup queso fresco, crumbled
  • 1 cup white queso dip, melted
  • 1/2 cup cilantro, rough chopped
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder
  • salt + pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. 1. Heat grill to 400 degrees. *these can also be cooked in the oven if you don’t have an outdoor grill - also at 400 degrees
  2. 2. In a medium skillet add avocado oil and heat to medium heat.
  3. 3. Sautée diced jalapeños and onion until tender, about 5-7 minutes. Set aside.
  4. 4. In a large mixing bowl combine ground turkey, chorizo, shredded cheese, 1/4 cup of the cilantro, garlic powder, chili powder, salt and pepper.
  5. 5. Add sautéed onions, peppers and combine meat mixture well with your hands.
  6. 6. Next slice poblano peppers lengthwise and remove seeds, leaving stems attached.
  7. 7. Place peppers on a parchment lined cookie sheet.
  8. 8. Carefully stuff poblanos with raw meat mixture, making sure to press meat down into the pepper. Filling each one just a tad over the top, creating a slight mound.
  9. 9. Sprinkle with crumbled queso fresco and remainder of chopped cilantro.
  10. 10. Place sheet pan directly on grill grate, close lid and let cook for 20 minutes or until meat is cooked through completely.
  11. 11. Just before peppers are finished cooking, heat queso dip in microwave for 1-2 minutes.
  12. 12. Remove pan from grill or oven. Immediately drizzle melted queso dip with a spoon over peppers and serve.
