Stuffed Poblano Peppers

Stuffed Poblano Peppers are fun to make and fun to eat! Each poblano pepper gets stuffed with farro, veggies, and beans to make a delicious and hearty meal!

Hi, it’s Maria from Two Peas and Their Pod and I have some exciting news!! For the month of March I have teamed up with Better Homes and Gardens to give you some great recipes for Meatless Mondays.

I knew I wanted to make BHG’s Stuffed Poblano Pepper recipe the first time I saw it. Stuffed peppers are a favorite of mine. I mean, come on, how can you resist serving your meal in an edible bowl? It’s genius! Not to mention that a poblano pepper is a fantastic replacement to a traditional stuffed bell pepper and adds a great earthy flavor to the dish.

I made only one simple change to this recipe to make it just right for my family and me. All I did was leave out the sausage making it a perfect vegetarian option. Although this stuffed pepper is a meal all on its own, it would also be great served as a side dish or a starter as well.

This recipe is definitely not the stuffed pepper of your childhood. Each pepper is choked full of rich flavor and heat. Plus this recipe gives you an enjoyable way to eat healthy without feeling like your being deprived.

The faro definitely adds a nutty, delicate chew to the dish; leaving you feeling satisfied and content. It is a delicious grain that pairs perfectly with the other veggies in this recipe: onions, celery, sweet peppers, garlic, pimentos and kidney beans. It is seasoned to a perfect spice with cayenne and chile powder; and if you’re feeling really brave, serve your peppers with a drizzle of salsa for some additional heat.

This recipe is a beautiful and delicious way to enjoy a meal; blackened, hollowed and stuffed with a perfect medley of flavors sure to please any palate.

Make Stuffed Poblano Peppers for Meatless Monday tomorrow. You can find the full recipe here. Enjoy!
