These aren’t the stuffed peppers you’ve always known, and yet, we’re sure you’ll love them. Poblano chiles are dark green, triangular in shape and sweeter in flavor than bell peppers. Stuffed full of the veggies, Cheddar cheese, chicken and beans that this recipe calls for, poblanos get even better! And better for you, thanks to smart swaps—beans in place of rice and chicken in place of ground beef—that cut calories. But don’t worry, less fat doesn’t mean less flavor in this case, as these get cooked in a sauce that’s zesty and easy to make—simply blend together an onion, Old El Paso™ chicken taco seasoning mix and Old El Paso™ enchilada sauce. Combining pantry staples with simple vegetables means this recipe is easy enough for a weeknight. So even if your standby recipe is our classic Stuffed Peppers , give this version a try, and you’ll see why we think there’s room for another stuffed pepper recipe in your repertoire! MORE+ LESS-

Expert Tips

  • Serve with light sour cream or salsa.
  • When handling chiles, be sure to wear kitchen gloves to protect your hands, and be careful not to touch your face or eyes. The seeds and membranes of chiles can cause burns. Always wash your hands thoroughly after handling chiles.
