Squash-Stuffed Roasted Poblano Peppers

Fall 2003, The Essential EatingWell Cookbook (2004)

Your rating: None Average: 4.3 (10 votes)

When fresh, poblanos have a wonderful, somewhat sweet heat that makes a terrific vessel for rich-tasting butternut squash stuffing. Accompanied by corn tortillas or rice and beans, this makes a special vegetarian entree. Most of the preparation can be done in advance and the recipe can easily be doubled. Look for dark green poblanos about 5 inches long, with broad shoulders at the stem, tapering to a pointy tip. Wash your hands thoroughly after removing the seeds or wear rubber gloves; most of the chile oils are found in the seeds and connective membranes.

Great recipe!

I had never roasted peppers before so I tried it in the oven and it was very simple. I did use the center rack and next time I think I would place the peppers closer to the heat. I could not find pineapple juice concentrate but had pineapple ice cream topping and added that to the squash. It worked well. I also did not fry these but instead stuffed with only the squash and then covered with pepperjack cheese and baked covered for about 20 minutes then uncoveded for a bit to brown the cheese. I will definately make these again in some form now that I know how easy roasting peppers is.

Not worth your time

normally i agree with time required to prepare a dish from eating well; however this took me 2 times longer and was not worth it. the bread crumbs won't stick and it was overall unremarkable. i want my afternoon back :-(

Originally saw this on Food Networks website, but could not find it there! This is the 3rd time making it. WONDERFUL!!!! I didn't have the pineapple concentrate...first time used a little lemon juice, ...second time used OJ, this time, fresh pineapple juiced...all worked beautifully. Not spicey but full of deep flavor...yum-a-licious! FIVE STARS!!!
