Mealthy Tip

If Poblano peppers are not currently in season or not available, try green or red bell peppers instead because they tend to be available in stores year-round. Leftover rice can be substituted for the cooked quinoa in this recipe.

I love these stuffed peppers! Poblanos are mildly hot so it added a nice kick to this dish. I've really only ever used poblanos in Mexican cooking, so this reminded me of those same bold flavors. With that said, I opted for cotija instead of goat cheese crumbles. The lime crema was also really delicious. I really enjoyed it overall and am definitely going to make this again.

These stuffed poblano peppers were great. I was hesitant about the quinoa at first, but surprisingly it was really good. I think it is my new favorite ingredient to cook with! I always usually make rice stuffed bell peppers so this was a nice switch.

I love a nice spicy dish like the next guy, and this one does not disappoint. These peppers had a lot of flavor but were not too spicy. I will make a lot more of these when my garden peppers are ready this fall!
