Stuffed Peppers rec.

we love stuffed peppers and have this a few times a year..I always serve with corn salsa or avocado salsa, carnitas, and tortillas.


4-pasilla or poblano peppers
1-cup.grated pepper jack cheese
1-c. jack cheese
1-tea.cumin seed, toasted
2-tea. dried greek oregano

blacken your peppers, place in paper bag and when cool, peel and take off stem and seeds. be careful not to tear your peppers. Mix together the cheeses,cumin and oregano. Stuff into the pepper packing fairly tightly. Wrap each pepper in foil or put in a small baking dish just big enough to hold them. put in 350 oven til cheese is melted about 15 min.

enjoy,

kadesma

Wow that sounds like a keeper!
Question - as I'm not a fan of cumin, what would you recommend as a substitute?

jkath,
I like cumin in very small amounts, so when I make these, I make several without the cumin seed and instead just add a little sauteed diced onion and a touch say 1 clove of minced garlic and the oregano or marjoram, and, with the avocado salsa they are just as good to me.

Of course, what would a day be without them
jkath, another idea for you, if you have left over boiled potatoes, you can cube them and along with some sort of finely diced cooked meat, add those to the onions,garlic and put in an herb you like and your cheese of choice, saute and stuff the peppers. I had this one time in San Antonio and it was wonderful. One good way to use up some leftovers..

Kadesma, I'm not a pepper expert, are those two types that you mentioned hot ones? We're both mild pepper fans, do you think that I could take Phil's suggest and use bell peppers instead, have you tried it this way? TIA and awesome looking recipe!

No Piccolina, I haven't tried the green bells..Poblano can be a little spicy, , I'd suggest trying the Italian long green peppers, but peeling them might be touchy, although I've eaten pablanos and I'm not a HOT pepper person or eat much of anything hot..I'd look for a fairly good size sweet pepper and try that..If I were to use a bell I think I'd try a red or yellow before green they are milder and sweeter..Hope this help..I know some have posted about the heat in peppers, maybe one of them could recommend a nice sized sweet pepper we could try.

Totally helpful Kademsa, thank-you! I really like the idea of using red bell peppers, or perhaps a mix of orange and red, thank-you! I just adore pepper recipes assuming they stay on the mild side
