Directions

  1. For filling, in a large skillet cook ground pork or other meat, onion, and garlic until meat is brown and onion is tender. Drain off fat. Stir in chopped apple and/or pear, tomato sauce, raisins, salt, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, and cumin. Bring to boiling. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 10 minutes. Stir in almonds.
  2. Meanwhile, cut a lengthwise slit in a side of each poblano pepper and remove seeds and membrane. (If using, halve the sweet peppers lengthwise; discard seeds and membranes.) In a saucepan cool poblano peppers or sweet peppers in boiling water about 5 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain the peppers well.
  3. Spoon the meat mixture into the peppers. Place the stuffed peppers in a 2-quart rectangular baking dish. Bake in a 350 degree F oven about 20 minutes or until heated through. Meanwhile, for the Walnut Sauce, in a blender container or food processor bowl, combine walnuts, cream cheese, milk, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, and 1/8 teaspoon salt. Cover and blend or process until smooth. Makes about 1 cup.
  4. To serve, spoon Walnut Sauce and Chili Colorado onto serving plates. Place stuffed peppers on top of the sauces. Makes 6 servings.

From the Test Kitchen
