This vegetarian dish is so hearty it will even satisfy even an avid meat-eater. Poblano chiles are stuffed with beans and veggies and smothered with cheese for a mexican dish you will adore.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat broiler.

Step 2

Place poblanos on a foil-lined baking sheet. Broil 5 minutes on each side or until blackened and charred. Place poblanos in a paper bag; fold to close tightly. Let stand 15 minutes; peel. Cut a slit lengthwise in each poblano; discard seeds, keeping chiles intact. Set aside.

Step 3

Reduce the oven temperature to 400°.

Step 4

Bring vegetable broth to a boil in a medium saucepan; gradually stir in bulgur. Remove from heat; cover and let stand for 30 minutes.

Step 5

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add onion and garlic to pan; sauté for 5 minutes or until the onion is lightly browned. Add beans, green chiles, and cumin. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 10 minutes or until thickened, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; let stand 10 minutes. Stir in cooked bulgur.

Step 6

Divide bean mixture evenly among poblanos. Press poblanos gently to close. Place poblanos, seam-side up, on a foil-lined baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Top each poblano with 3 tablespoons cheese. Bake the poblanos at 400° for 15 minutes or until lightly browned.

Step 7

Combine tomato and remaining ingredients in a medium bowl. Serve with poblanos.
