It was a sad day when we moved into our new house and realized we did not get NBC. I guess my days of watching her on TV are over, but at least I get her magazine to drool over every month!

I tore this recipe out of Rachael’s magazine months before I finally had a chance to make it.

I liked her recipe, but you know, I had to make it my own. 😉

Aside from the fact that this recipe is a stuffed poblano it also has a delicious bell pepper salsa that is out of this world.

I used ground buffalo to stuff the poblanos, but any ground meat or sausage will work. The can of fire roasted tomatoes added a nice smoky heat to the meat mixture.

Even though this recipe uses poblanos versus bell peppers, the amount of heat in my poblanos was not overpowering for the kiddos. However, I should probably mention one of them is a Sriracha lover so maybe heat doesn’t bother them.

While the peppers are baking in the oven I prepare the salsa.

The colorful salsa is so fresh and delicious especially as a garnish on the peppers. Allow these Clean Eating Stuffed Poblanos to cool for at least 15 minutes before topping with the salsa or toppings like sour cream, guacamole, or additional shredded cheese.
