This Chicken Stuffed Poblano Peppers recipe is great as a spicy summer party appetizer or for any occasion.

  • 4 large poblano peppers
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup cooked rice
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • Lime wedges, for serving (optional)
  • Baking sheet
  • Parchment paper
  • Large skillet
  • Preheat your oven to 400 F (200 C)
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Cut a slit lengthwise down each poblano pepper, leaving the stem intact and carefully remove the seeds and membranes
  • In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat and add the ground chicken, chopped onion, and minced garlic
  • Cook, while breaking up the chicken with a spoon, until browned and cooked through
  • Stir in the ground cumin, chili powder, smoked paprika, salt, and pepper and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes, until the spices are fragrant
  • Remove the skillet from the heat and stir in the cooked rice, shredded Monterey Jack cheese, and chopped fresh cilantro
  • Spoon the chicken and rice mixture evenly into each poblano pepper
  • Place the stuffed peppers on the prepared baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, until the peppers are tender and the filling is heated through

  • No one is chatting at the moment.
  • The Helper The Helper: is a link to the old news portal - i will integrate it into the interface somewhere when i figure it out
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Need to try something
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Hopefully this won't cause problems.
  • Ghan Ghan:
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I have converted the Headline News forum to an Article type forum. It will now show the top 20 threads with more detail of each thread.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    See how we like that.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I do not see a way to go past the 1st page of posts on the forum though
  • The Helper The Helper:
    It is OK though for the main page to open up on the forum in the view it was before. As long as the portal has its own URL so it can be viewed that way I do want to try it as a regular forum view for a while
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Yeah I'm not sure what the deal is with the pagination.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It SHOULD be there so I think it might just be an artifact of having an older style.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I switched it to a "Standard" article forum. This will show the thread list like normal, but the threads themselves will have the first post set up above the rest of the "comments"
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I don't really get that article forum but I think it is because I have never really seen it used on a multi post thread
  • Ghan Ghan:
    RpNation makes more use of it right now as an example:

    What do you think Tom?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    I will have to get used to this.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    The latest news feed looks good
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I would like to see it again like Ghan had it the first time with pagination though - without the pagination that view will not work but with pagination it just might...
  • The Helper The Helper:
    This drink recipe I have had more than a few times back in the day! Mind Eraser
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Happy Thursday!
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I'm not so sure, there's still a lot of Thursday left for it to become unhappy.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    still a few hours
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Its Friday!!!!
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Thursday 7/10 would Thursday again
