This recipe is all filler, but we mean that in the best possible way. Soft-roasted poblanos are stuffed to the brim with a warmly spiced mix of ground turkey and rice, then blanketed with a rich tomato sauce and a layer of melted Monterey Jack cheese. In other words, it’s got plenty of substance and south-of-the-border style, too.

Veggie Stock Concentrate
Southwest Spice Blend
Monterey Jack Cheese(ContainsMilk)
Wash and dry all produce. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Bring ¾ cup water and 1 stock concentrate to a boil in a small pot. Halve poblano peppers lengthwise and remove cores. Rub with a drizzle of oil, then season with salt and pepper. Place on a baking sheet. Roast in oven until soft, about 20 minutes.
Once stock boils, add rice to pot. Cover and reduce to a gentle simmer. Cook until tender, 15-20 minutes. Meanwhile, halve, peel, and dice onion. Finely chop jalapeño, removing ribs and seeds for less heat. TIP: Tearing up from the onion? Use a sharper knife. Get one for next time at HelloFresh.com/Shop
Heat a drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add onion and jalapeño (to taste). Cook, tossing, until soft, 4-5 minutes. Add 2 tsp Southwest spice (we sent more) and turkey, breaking up meat into pieces. Cook until no longer pink, 4-5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Remove from heat.
In another small pot, stir together half the crushed tomatoes (we sent more than needed), remaining stock concentrate, ⅓ cup water, remaining Southwest spice, and as much chipotle powder as you like (start with a pinch and go up from there). Season with salt and pepper. Bring to a gentle simmer over medium-low heat.
Once rice is done cooking, add to pan with filling. Toss to combine. Season with salt, pepper, and any remaining chipotle powder, if desired. (TIP: If your pan is not ovenproof, transfer mixture to a small baking dish at this point.) Stuff poblanos with as much filling as will fit. Return to same pan, nestling in remaining unused filling.
Drizzle sauce over stuffed poblanos. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake in oven until cheese melts, 2-3 minutes. Divide stuffed poblanos and filling from pan between plates and serve.
