  • 4 poblano peppers or bell peppers for less spicy option
  • 1 pound pork ground (or beef)
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 tbsp cumin ground
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt or to taste
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup mushroom caps diced
  • 2 tbsp crema for garnish, or cotija cheese
  • 1/4 cup cilantro


  • Set broiler to high.
  • Place peppers on sheet pan and broil for 3 to 4 minutes on each side. Remove from oven and place in plastic zipper-locked bag.
  • Adjust oven temperature to 400 degrees F.
  • Once peppers are cool to touch, peel skins off peppers.
  • Carefully place a slit lengthwise along peppers and remove seeds from within.
  • Brown pork in a skillet over medium heat. Carefully pour off excess grease.
  • Add tomato paste, cumin, chili powder, onion powder, salt, and water to skillet. Bring to a boil, the drop to a simmer to cook off excess water.
  • Remove skillet from heat and stir in mushrooms.
  • Carefully stuff mixture into the hollowed out peppers and place on a lightly greased baking dish. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Serve garnished with crema and cilantro.


Note: If using bell peppers, you can skip steps 1-4. Broiling and peeling bell peppers are optional! Instead, cut the bell pepper in half lengthwise in lieu of slit and proceed to step 5.
