  • cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided (you can also use whatever cheese you have on hand; cheddar cheese, mexican blend cheese, white cheddar, etc…)
  • Chopped fresh cilantro or parsley, for garnish


  • Preheat the broiler.
  • Line a baking sheet with foil.
  • Arrange the poblanos, cut-side down, on the baking sheet.
  • Brush each pepper with 1/2 tablespoon olive oil. You can also use olive oil cooking spray.
  • Broil for 5 minutes, or until skins start to blister.
  • Remove peppers from oven and set aside for a minute.
  • In the meantime, heat up the remaining olive oil in a large skillet set over medium-high heat.
  • Add the chili to the skillet and cook for about 4 to 5 minutes, or until heated through; stir in 1 cup of shredded cheese, stir until melted.
  • Remove from heat. If there is any liquid in the skillet from the chili, drain it. You want a thick chili that holds together.
  • Turn the peppers over and divide up the chili between all the peppers.
  • Top each pepper with remaining cheese.
  • Broil for 3 more minutes, or until cheese is melted.
  • Garnish with cilantro or parsley.
  • Serve.
