Description

These cheesy, Southwestern-style peppers make a great side dish to burritos and tacos, or serve on thier own as an unexpected appetizer. Pass cold sour cream and additional cilantro seperately to garnish.

Ingredients

4 tablespoons
oil
8  
poblano peppers
1/4 cup
cilantro
8 ounces
cheese, cheddar
1/4 cup
onion
1 clove
garlic

Instructions

Combine cheese, cilantro, onion, and garlic in a bowl and set aside.  Cut a shallow incision in the side of each pepper or slice in half.  Carefully scrape out the seeds.  Rub generous amounts of oil over the interior of each pepper.  Gently fill cheese mixture into each. 

Heat a cast-iron skillet over high heat or set oven to broil.  Roast peppers in skillet until black on all sides or broil for 5-10 minutes. When cool enough to handle, remove blackened peel before serving.
