Gluten Free Chorizo-Stuffed Poblano Peppers

You won’t believe how quick and easy these tasty gluten free stuffed peppers come together. You can have this delicious, low-carb entrée on the table in just over half an hour without much fuss, because the spicy Chorizo sausage delivers a ton of flavor without adding a lot of other seasonings. As an added bonus, these peppers freeze extremely well, so you can easily double or triple this recipe for even faster weeknight meals later.

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 25-30 minutes
Serves: 4-6


2 c. sugar-free tomato sauce,* divided
4 large Poblano peppers
1½ lbs. bulk Chorizo sausage
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
4 oz. goat cheese, softened
½ c. freshly grated Parmesan cheese, divided
Sea salt and black pepper, to taste


Additional tomato sauce and Parmesan cheese, for serving.


Preheat oven to 350°F and spread tomato sauce across bottom of 9×13” baking dish. Set aside.

Cut Poblano peppers in half lengthwise, leaving stems intact on one side. Remove seeds and set aside.

Brown Chorizo in a large skillet over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until no longer pink. Remove from heat and drain excess fat from pan.

Add cream cheese, goat cheese, and ¼ cup Parmesan cheese to skillet and stir until cheese is melted and sausage is thoroughly coated. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Carefully spoon sausage mixture into empty Poblano pepper halves and arrange in prepared baking dish and sprinkle with remaining Parmesan cheese.

Place baking dish in pre-heated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until cheese is melted and peppers are heated through. Remove from oven and serve immediately with additional tomato sauce and Parmesan cheese, if desired.

When it comes to baking dishes you can’t get any better then the Emile Henry Baking Dishes. They are top of the line quality and not too expensive. They have an enamel coating that prevents sticking and makes clean up a breeze! This dish is nice and deep which prevents things from spilling over the sizes, I always have that problem with my lasagna but not with this dish. Click on the picture or link to check it out for yourself!!

As we have talked about in many other recipes for a great skillet use the Le Creuset Cast Iron Skillet. This skillet can handle anything from frying to baking. I recently made a skillet cookie with this pan and it turned out fantastic! I served it with a scoop of ice cream on top, which my husband loved, and even the non gluten free guests thought it was delicious! To pick one up for your kitchen click on the picture or link.
