Chicken Enchilada Stuffed Peppers

Tonight's menu was chicken enchilada stuffed peppers.  We often make this chicken enchilada stuffing and eat it with tortilla chips, but tonight we decided to stuff it in poblano peppers.  It turned out really delicious, and it's so easy to make.

Half and seed three poblano peppers.

Shred 6-7 cooked chicken tenderloins.

Drain these three and add to the chicken.

Mix in some cheese and a can of enchilada sauce, and you are done with the stuffing.

All stuffed and ready for the oven.

The recipe calls for six peppers, but I only used three, so I cooked the rest of the mixture in a small baking dish to eat with tortilla chips.  (This is the way we usually eat it, but I cook it in a 9x13 baking dish - also very yummy.)

Delicious!

This is such an easy, go-to dish.  It is a favorite at the Sumrall Estate.  Here is the recipe:

Ingredients:
(Makes 12 halves)
6-7 cooked chicken tenderloins, shredded
1 can black beans, drained
1 can yellow corn, drained
1 can rotel, drained
1 can enchilada sauce
2 cups shredded Mexican cheese blend
6 large poblano peppers, cut in half lengthwise and seeded
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a large bowl, combine first five ingredients and half of the cheese.  Fill peppers with mixture and place in a baking dish.  Cook for 30 minutes, top with remaining cheese, and cook five more minutes or until cheese is bubbly.
