A Mexican style stuffed pepper recipe made with poblano peppers, seasoned chicken and rice.

‘Tis the season for stuffed peppers! Actually, around here, it is ALWAYS the season for stuffed peppers. Can’t help it. We both just LOVE stuffed pepper recipes and they’re easy to put together.

Not only that, they’re darned delicious and allow you to get creative with your cooking. With Thanksgiving over (to our family and American friends/readers), you might have leftover turkey or chicken in the fridge right now. This recipe would be PERFECT for leftovers. If not, start from scratch, but hey! It’s worth it.

Ideal for any time of the year, of course. I mean…STUFFED PEPPERS!

Chicken and Black Bean Stuffed Poblano Peppers

This is a very Mexican style ingredient combination, with chicken seasoned with ancho and paprika, though if you’re unable to find those specific ingredients, you can use a Mexican blend or even a taco seasoning that you prefer.

It also includes black beans, crumbled Cojita cheese, avocado, white rice and cooks in a Mexican beer for extra flavor. And don’t forget the cilantro! It’s time to go to town with poblanos!

I think poblano peppers are one of my personal favorite chili peppers to stuff. They’re large enough to comprise a full meal and they bring an earthy flavor like no other pepper. Cheers to the poblano! I love you so.

Bell peppers work great, too, and you have options with many different colors.
