5Anaheim peppersstemmed and cored ( or more as needed, depending on the size)
2ouncesshredded cheddar cheese
FOR SERVINGChopped fresh cilantro, spicy chili flakes and hot sauce, if desired.
Heat an oven to 400 degrees.
Place Anaheim peppers on a baking sheet and bake about 20-25 minutes, flipping once through, or until the skins become charred and puffy. Or, you can char them over open flame on the stovetop.
Remove from heat and cool slightly, then place into a plastic baggie to steam for several minutes. Once cooled enough, peel off the skins and discard. Set the peppers aside until ready to use.
In a mixing bowl, combine cheeses with garlic and Cajun seasoning. Mix well.
Slit each pepper down the center and scoop out the insides.
Spoon the seasoned cheese mixture into the peppers and set them into a baking dish.
Bake for 15 minutes. Alternatively, you can grill the stuffed Anaheim peppers for 15 minutes, or broil them for 6-7 minutes, until the cheeses are nice and melty.
Remove from heat and set onto serving plates.
Top with cilantro, spicy chili flakes and hot sauce, if desired.
Heat Factor: Mild. Anaheim peppers are quite low on the heat scale. You can easily add in some hotter chopped peppers or chili flakes/powders with your cheese blend, or use a spicy Creole or Cajun seasoning blend. Or finish with a spicy hot sauce.
