Cheesy Turkey and Green Chile Stuffed Poblanos

Cheesy, spicy and fresh are just a few words to describe this amazing dinner. With fresh corn just starting to pop up in the produce department, I jumped at the chance to use it in this recipe. It pairs wonderfully with the spicy poblanos and the sweet green chile. Serve this dish topped with sour cream or Greek yogurt and a sprinkle of fresh cilantro. If you're not a huge spicy fan, simply stuff the turkey mixture into green or red peppers.

1. Preheat oven to 400. Coat a 13x9 baking dish with cooking spray. 
2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add mushrooms, corn and green onion and cook for 2 minutes longer. 




3. Add ground turkey and cook until no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Add green chiles, cumin, chili powder, onion powder, cilantro, salt and lime juice and stir to combine. Remove pan from heat. 




4. Fill the poblanos with the turkey mixture and sprinkle cheese over the top.


5. Spray a piece of foil with cooking spray and cover the baking dish. Bake for 20 minutes; uncover and bake for 10 minutes longer, or until the cheese is bubbly and golden. 


6. Let the poblanos sit for 5 minutes before serving.
