Ingredients

  • 4 poblano peppers
  • 1/2 cup sharp cheddar, diced
  • 2 cups pulled pork, cooked*
  • 1/2 cup low carb barbecue sauce*

Instructions

  1. heat to 400 degrees for 20 minutes

    boil peppers for 8 minutes

  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

  3. Get a large pot of water boiling as you cut the peppers.

  4. To prepare the peppers, cut them in half lengthwise and clean out the seeds. Drop them in the boiling water and cook for 8 minutes. Spoon them out and place in a bowl of ice water to retain their color and cool off.

  5. Meanwhile mix the cheddar and the pulled pork. When the peppers are cooled, stuff with the mixture and place in a baking dish.

  6. Bake for 20 minutes and when done, spoon a tablespoon of low carb bbq sauce over each pepper.

  7. NOTE* I am using already cooked pulled pork from this recipe and a low carb bbq sauce from this recipe. If you don't care about carbs you can use your own recipes or already prepared items.
