“I love the smokey flavor of poblanos, but sweet peppers may be substituted. Adjust the amount of sweet peppers used if very large. Poblanos are smaller. Don't leave off a dollop of sour cream for it mellows the taste. A dish to be ready in 30 minutes for your own fiesta. From Home Made Simple.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Saute chorizo for 6-8 minutes, gently breaking it up with a wooden spoon.
  3. Stir in onions, garlic and corn. Cook for 2-3 more minutes, then add tomato paste, oregano, cilantro and cumin. Stir until well combined.
  4. Mix in Cotija cheese, then remove from heat. Taste and season with salt and pepper as needed.
  5. Slice poblano peppers lengthwise, keeping the stem intact and remove seeds. Spoon chorizo mixture into peppers and sprinkle with shredded cheese.
  6. Arrange stuffed peppers in a baking dish. Add to the bottom of the pan, 2 tablespoons water. Grease a sheet of foil with oil on the underside. Place foil over baking dish, sealing tightly. Bake in a preheated oven for 20 minutes. Carefully remove foil (beware steam build-up) and continue to bake 15-20 minutes. Serve with dollops of sour cream.
