Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Poblano Peppers

Since I do not like green bell peppers, I decided to create a filling that would go well with my favorite pepper, a poblano. After a few taste tests with my family, this stuffed poblano peppers recipe is now one of our favorites. I have also added black beans, used Cubanelle peppers and served with cilantro lime rice. —Lorri Stout, Gaithersburg, Maryland

    OK! This recipe stands on its own as a great recipe. My congratulations and compliments to the creator. I - just on a whim - tried a dollop of sour cream on top of my effort after I had already consumed one pepper. This was like adding the crescendo to the symphony - the glitter bomb to the fireworks. The sour cream is a faithful companion to this already wonderful dish!

    Love, love, love this recipe! Heat level was perfect. Filling was nice and creamy. We served ours with ranch dressing on the side. Can't wait to make these again!
