I can’t walk through the produce department without stopping to check out all the bright, colorful peppers even on the rare occasion they’re not on my shopping list. This time, I picked up five different kinds. Habaneros, Anaheim chilies, poblanos, jalapeños and a mix of bell peppers. Think I’m nuts? I made the most amazing sweet and spicy, Paleo- and Whole30-compliant Five Alarm Five Pepper Soup (recipe coming soon!).

I am pepper-obsessed. If you need proof, just check out my Beefy Stuffed Poblano PeppersRoasted Habanero Salsa, Chicken Jalapeño PoppersJalapeño Lime Marinade or Beefy, Creamy Jalapeño Poppers.

I whipped up a Coconut Avocado Drizzle to compliment these Chipotle Lime Chicken Stuffed Poblano Peppers, and the result was divine! The slight tropical notes of the cool, creamy sauce offset the south-of-the-border spiciness of the peppers perfectly! It also makes for a pretty presentation, and we all love gorgeous food, amiright?

You’ll want to roast the poblanos and remove the skins before stuffing them. To do this, you can place them under a broiler or over the flame on a gas stove, turning with tongs as they char. Once they are blackened evenly, place them in a bowl covered in saran wrap, a brown paper bag or a plastic zipper bag and leave for 15 minutes. After they cool, you can slide off the skins. **Make sure to wear gloves while handling the peppers!**

Instructions

  1. Roast and remove the pepper skins if you haven’t already. For more info, please refer back to the post.
  2. Preheat the oven to 425°F.
  3. In a large skillet, heat the coconut oil over medium-high heat until melted, about 1-2 minutes.
  4. Add the ground chicken and onions. Brown 7-8 minutes. Use a Mix ‘n’ Chop or wooden spatula to keep the chicken nice and ground. Your mixture should still be a little juicy from the onions at this point. If not, add back a tablespoon of water.
  5. Add the lime juice, chipotle powder, cumin, garlic (or garlic powder) and salt, and cook 1-2 minutes until mixed well and juice is mostly cooked down.
  6. Test the meat mixture, and add more salt to taste if necessary. Add cayenne pepper 1/8 tsp. at a time if you want a little more heat.
  7. Grease baking dish with additional coconut oil.
  8. Using a spoon, fill the peppers to capacity with the meat filling.
  9. Bake at 425°F for 15-20 minutes or until filling is browned.
  10. Serve with Coconut Avocado Drizzle and freshly torn cilantro leaves.

    Thanks Kristi,
    This is some very interesting information, thank you for sharing. I had no idea that the skin when well cooked where hard on the digestion. Sorry for being a bit snarky. I do get frustrated when I see images of food that don’t line up with the recipe and I see it a lot. I am sure you have experienced the immense satisfaction when your food comes out just like the picture😋😋

    Do you remove the seeds from the peppers? I don’t see it mentioned anywhere.

    Me and the husband are doing Whole 30. He’s ubver picky so I had to find yummy recipes to keep him going. We LOVED this recipe! I saw it had 1 Star… but took a gander and figured it wasn’t for taste. We’ll be adding this to our “regular” dinner rotation. We also made the sauce! YUM! (I took a picture but can’t find where to share).
