When you make breakfast (or brunch) for someone you love, what do you serve them?

I like to go with something comforting, loaded with hearty breakfast flavors. Something smoky and cheesy. Something unique, that makes you feel special when you eat it.

Lots of cheese.

I complemented these smoky peppers with two Hispanic Cheeses from Cacique.

Did you know California is the largest producer of hispanic cheeses in the US? California Cheesemakers produce dozens of various hispanic cheeses, perfect for melting and crumbling in all your favorite dishes.

I used silky creamy Quesadilla Cheese inside each stuffed poblano and sharp crumby Cotija on top of each pepper.

The combination of the two cheeses really makes these stuffed poblano peppers burst with flavor.

My family love this recipe.

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Place 4 poblano peppers on a rimmed baking sheet and roasted in the oven for 15-20 minutes, until the skin is bubbly.

  2. Meanwhile, heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add the butter to the skillet and once melted, add the hash browns. Liberally salt and pepper the hash browns, then brown for 5-8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden and crispy. Lower the heat to low.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs until frothy, then stir in the sun dried tomatoes, scallions, and Quesadilla Cheese. Pour the mixture over the hash browns and stir to combine. Cook the egg mixture for 2-3 minutes until just-under-cooked, but scoopable. Remove from heat.
  4. Remove any loose skin from the top of the pobalno peppers. Gently cut a slit in the top of each pepper and scoop out the seeds. Then spoon the egg mixture into the poblano peppers. Reshape the peppers with your hands.
  5. Sprinkle Cotija cheese over the top of each pepper, and place back in the oven for 5-8 minutes, until the cheese is toasted and the eggs are cooked through.

    Can you eat the pepper without peeling it? Otherwise looks amazing!

      Hi Anna,

      You can, but it has a waxy texture. It’s better when peeled. :)
