Paleo Stuffed Poblano Peppers

on February 19, 2012

I made this last night for dinner and it was phenomenal.  In fact, we had it on eggs for breakfast this morning… I called it huevos rancheros, ha!   It makes great leftovers, so make plenty!

Cauliflower rice:

  • 1/2 head of cauliflower
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/2 red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 clove of minced garlic
  • salt and pepper

Wash and break up the cauliflower.  Pulse in food processor until it’s in small rice-like pieces.  Heat coconut oil over medium heat in skillet.  Saute the onion and garlic 4-5 minutes, add the cauliflower and continue to saute for 4-5 minutes.  Season with salt and pepper.

Stuffed peppers:

  • 6 Poblano peppers
  • 1 lb ground grass-fed beef
  • 4 cloves minced garlic
  • 2 Tbsp chili powder
  • 1 Tbsp paprika
  • 1/2 Tbsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes (more if you like spicy)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1 large tomato, chopped
  • 1 tsp cilantro
  • Cauliflower rice (recipe above)

Roast peppers until skin is bubbling and black, let cool, then peel off skin and remove seeds.  Set aside.  Brown ground meat in skillet with garlic, chili powder, paprika, oregano, red pepper, salt, and black pepper.  Remove meat from heat and stir in onions, tomato, and cilantro.  Open poblano peppers and add some cauliflower rice, and meat mixture.  Fold pepper over the top.  After all peppers are stuffed in a baking dish, bake at 400 for 20-25 minutes.  Enjoy!
