Stuffed Green Peppers

This year, in addition to my regular mix of jalapenos and serranos, I planted some “chocolate peppers.” I had never heard of those. They turned out to be larger in size – about the size of a poblano but the bright green color of bell peppers. Maybe had i let them age on the vine, they’d have turned browner in color. But I was hungry.

I just cored out the top of these guys, and stuffed them with ground beef, diced onions, some leftover pico de gallo, cumin, salt, pepper, and slices of corn tortillas. I slightly browned the beef prior to stuffing just to drain some of the fat and get it partially cooked before popping into the oven.

Bake covered at 400 for about 30 minutes. Yummy!
