Stuffed Poblano Pepper

Here is a healthy summer appetizer that is full of flavor, but not full of that unwanted fat. This week we are featuring a "fire roasted" (and as you can see from the picture below, quite literally) poblano pepper stuffed with chipotle black beans, topped with melted chihuahua cheese and served with an adobo-cilantro sour cream. It is also served with our house made corn tortilla chips. Stop down this week for one of these flavorful Mexican treats.

Your typical frozen stuffed jalapeno poppers that you see in every other place out there are no match for our poblano. The poblano is one of the most widely grown peppers in Mexico that is known for its mild chili flavor, not much more than the traditional bell pepper. This appetizer is one that a lot of people look forward to when we put it on special.

Not your traditional stuffed pepper, the poblano is done Mexican style made with some heat and spice. We take these peppers and use our own fire-roasting technique. Using actual fire really brings out the flavors of this pepper. Chef Chris then takes chipotle smoked black beans and stuffs each pepper before oven baking it with the mild Mexican cheese, chihuahua. Every one of these is made fresh, from scratch and never frozen, because that is how we do things around here.

These dark green chilis are the perfect starter for those looking to limit their calorie and fat intake. They also do not contain any cholestrol. Next time you are in, do not miss this somewhat spicy treat.
