Grilled Stuffed Poblano Chiles

When summer rolls around I love to cook out side and now that I am on a Paleo Diet grilling meats and veggies has become a favorite past time.

Poblano Chiles on the grill will bring out their robust flavor and make for a healthy great tasting calorie meal. 

I wanted to stay away from using rice as a filling and decided to use onions, garlic, tomatoes, mushrooms, a fresh chili pepper and some spices instead.

Here is the Ingredients List:

Poblano Chiles stuffed with Grilled Chicken and Mushrooms

3 large Poblano Chiles

3 Tomatoes grilled and chopped

1/2 red onion, chopped

2 small cloves of garlic, chopped

6 mushrooms , chopped

Sea Salt and Ground Pepper to taste

2 TBS Olive Oil

1 tsp dried Oregano

1 tsp ground cumin

3 chicken tenders, grilled and sliced

some fresh cilantro for garnish

1/4 cup cheddar cheese (optional)

To start off I turned on my grill and let it get really hot. While the grill was heating up, I picked three small chicken tenders and rubbed them with the spices on both sides.

After washing the Poblano chiles I cut them in the center and pried the sides apart to remove the seeds inside. Then I gave them a light brush with olive oil and placed them and the chicken on the grill.

Moving quickly, the onions, garlic and mushrooms were chopped into small pieces and placed on a slightly greased out pan and placed on the grill as well. I love it when tomatoes get slightly charred on the grill and therefore I let them grill slightly before adding them to the mix.

My grill gets insanely hot so once the chicken and the chiles were done, they went on a hickory smoked board. This step is not necessary, but I am a gadget gal and owe my hubby good reasons for the use of the gazillion gadgets I buy for cooking :)

Once the rest was cooked the chicken got cut up into thin stripes and added to the stuffing. I also added the chopped cilantro and a bit of cheddar cheese for those not on a diet at the very last step.

 

Served with a side of fresh greens, this made for a light and very tasty lunch!
