Ingredients

4 poblanos, roasted, seeded, skins removed

2 tablespoons butter

1 small onion, diced or 1/2 large onion

1 small red bell pepper, diced

1/4 cup pepita seeds

1 small tomato, diced

1 cup Yellow Cooked Rice, recipe follows

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

2 tablespoons freshly chopped cilantro leaves

1 cup shredded Monterey jack cheese

1/2 cup sour cream

Yellow Cooked Rice:

2 cups water

Pinch salt

1 cup yellow rice

Directions

  1. On a preheated grill roast your poblanos for about 10 minutes or until the skins begin to blister and char. Place into a bowl and cover with plastic wrap for about 5 minutes. In a medium skillet add the butter and saute the onion and red bell pepper until soft for about 5 minutes. Once cooked place into a medium bowl. In the same cleaned skillet toast the pepita seeds for about 3 minutes. Place into bowl with onions, peppers, diced tomato, cooked rice, salt, pepper and cilantro. Mix well. Carefully remove skins from poblanos. With a paring knife or your fingernail (the poblano with be tender), make a slit in the poblano from bottom to top. Pull and discard the seeds and inner membranes, being careful not to tear the rest of the poblano. With a spoon stuff poblanos with rice mixture. Top with cheese. Cover a section of the grill with foil and place the poblanos back on the grill for about 5 to 10 minutes until cheese melts. Top with a dollop of sour cream.
