Mild poblano peppers add some nice zest to this Tex-Mex treat.

Ingredients

  • 6 large poblano peppers
  • cooking oil
  • 3 cups cooked long grain rice
  • 2/3 cup sour cream
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded smoked Gouda or cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1 cup frozen corn kernels, thawed
  • 1/3 cup chopped cilantro leaves plus additional for garnish
  • salt and pepper to taste

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Slit each pepper lengthwise so peppers can later be stuffed with rice filling. Carefully remove loose seeds and veins, keeping stem intact. Rub pepper generously with oil and place on baking sheet. Combine rice, sour cream, 1 cup cheese, corn and cilantro in a medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Divide mixture to stuff each pepper; sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake in preheated oven 20 to 25 minutes, until peppers are crisp-tender and filling is heated through. Garnish with cilantro.
