  • 8 poblano chiles
  • 4 ounces mild goat cheese
  • 1/2 cup panela or Monterey jack cheese, grated
  • 1/2 pound shrimp, peeled, deveined and cooked
  • 1 tablespoon shallots, chopped
  • 1/4 cup red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 tablespoon cilantro, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh basil, chopped
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Red Bell Pepper Sauce

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup shallots, chopped
  • 1 serrano chile, seeded and chopped
  • 2 large red bell peppers, roasted
  • 1 cup chicken stock


  1. Poblanos: Roast poblano chiles either over a direct flame or under a broiler until charred. Allow chiles to steam in a plastic or paper bag, then remove the charred skin. Leaving the stems intact, make a slit in the sides of the chiles and remove the seeds.
  2. Heat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the cheeses with shrimp, shallots, bell peppers, cilantro and basil.
  4. Taking care not to tear the chilies, carefully stuff them with the cheese mixture.
  5. Transfer the chiles to a baking sheet. Place in preheated oven for about 10 minutes.
  6. Serve with red bell pepper sauce.
  7. Red Bell Pepper Sauce: Heat olive oil in a medium skillet. Add garlic, shallots and Serrano chile; sauté until shallots are tender, about 5 minutes.
  8. Transfer mixture to a blender. Add red bell pepper and chicken stock; blend until smooth.
  9. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
