These stuffed peppers are a flavorful, refreshing twist from the ordinary since they are poblano peppers stuffed with turkey or chicken, goat cheese and topped with an easy, homemade salsa verde.
Total Time:30 minutes
4 poblano or pasilla peppers
12 oz cooked and shredded turkey or chicken
4 oz goat cheese
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Place the peppers directly on the medium flame of a gas stove and turn every minute or so, until all sides are slightly charred. If you do not have a gas stove, place the peppers on a cookie sheet and broil in the oven, turning every couple of minutes to ensure all side get slightly charred.
Once the peppers are charred, put them immediately in a covered bowl or a large ziplock bag and allow them to sit approx 5-10 minutes.
Once the peppers have cooled, gently rub off the skin with a paper towel and then cut a slit down the middle to remove the seeds (I also cut off the tops of the peppers to make it easier)
Stuff each pepper with 3 oz turkey or chicken and 1 oz goat cheese and place in a lightly greased 3 quart baking dish
After the peppers are stuffed, pour salsa verde over the peppers
