Poblano peppers are perfect for stuffing. They’re mild, earthy, and sweet, plus, they stay a vibrant forest green once roasted. Chock full of savory ingredients like hearty whole grains, fresh tomato, and Southwestern spices, these packed peppers are sure to satisfy. They’re topped with melty Monterey Jack, vibrant avocado salsa (think: delicious, extra-chunky guac), and finished off with a dollop of zesty crema.

Adjust rack to middle position and preheat oven to 425 degrees. Wash and dry all produce. Halve poblanos lengthwise; remove stems and seeds. Drizzle each half with oil; season with salt and pepper. Place on a baking sheet and roast on middle rack until softened, 15-17 minutes.

In a small pot, combine rice, 1¼ cups water (2¼ cups for 4 servings), and a big pinch of salt. Bring to a boil; cover and reduce to a low simmer. Cook until tender, 15-18 minutes. Meanwhile, dice onion and tomato. Zest and quarter lime (quarter both limes for 4). Mince chili, removing seeds for less heat. In a small bowl, combine sour cream, lime zest to taste, salt, and pepper. Add water 1 tsp at a time until mixture reaches a drizzling consistency.

Add stock concentrate, Southwest Spice, half the tomato, 2 TBSP water (¼ cup for 4 servings), salt, and pepper. Cook, stirring, until softened, 2-3 minutes. Turn off heat.

Once poblanos are roasted, stuff each half with as much filling as will fit. Nestle into pan with remaining filling. (TIP: If your pan isn’t ovenproof, transfer mixture to a small baking dish and arrange stuffed poblanos in there.) Sprinkle poblano halves with Monterey Jack. Bake until cheese is melted and slightly crisp at edges, 7-8 minutes.
