Keyword black beans, poblano pepper, turkey, verde salsa
Servings 4


  • 4 poblano peppers sliced in half and seeded
  • 1 lb lean ground turkey
  • 15 oz (1 can) black beans rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup salsa verde divided
  • 4 oz pepper jack cheese shredded
  • coarse salt and fresh pepper to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees

  2. Place ground turkey in a large nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Brown turkey for about 8-10 minutes, crumbling with a wooden spoon. Season with a pinch of coarse salt and pepper. Once browned and cooked through, stir in beans and 3/4 cup of salsa and reduce heat. Let simmer for about 3-5 minutes until extra liquid is absorbed.

  4. After 15 minutes, remove foil and top each pepper with a little shredded cheese. Place back into oven and cook for another 5-10 minutes until cheese is melted and peppers are soft.
