What's this?

Bring the heat with these poblano peppers. Stuffed to the rim with ground buffalo and pork, rice, and a sweet heat tomato sauce, Paul Pabst from The Dan Patrick Show serves these spicy appetizers for his crazed (and hungry) sports fans.

Ingredients

  • 6 Medium Poblano Pepper

  • 2 Tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 Tablespoon garlic, minced

  • 1/4 Cup fresh parsley

  • 1 Medium yellow onion, diced

  • 2 vegetable oil

  • 1/2 Pound Buffalo, Ground

  • 1/2 Pound ground pork

  • 3/4 Teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 Teaspoon black pepper

  • Pinch red pepper flakes

  • 2 Cup Rice, Cooked

  • 8 Ounce tomato sauce

Steps

  • 1

    When ready to cook, set the Traeger to High and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
  • 2

    Drizzle all but 1 of the poblano peppers with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to thoroughly coat.
  • 3

    Place peppers directly on grill grate and roast 10 minutes, or until the skin is browned and blistered. Remove from grill and set aside to cool.
  • 4

    Place a cast iron skillet on grill and allow to preheat with lid closed for 20 minutes.
  • 5

    Mince garlic and chop parsley, onion and remaining poblano pepper.
  • 6

    Slice peppers in half lengthwise. Scrape out ribs and seeds with a spoon.
  • 7

    Add oil and then the onions and chopped poblano pepper. Cook until soft, about 3 minutes. Add the pork, buffalo, garlic, parsley, salt, black pepper and pepper flakes.
  • 8

    Cook until the meat is browned, stirring with a heavy wooden spoon to break up the lumps, about 6 minutes. Add the rice and tomato sauce and stir well.
  • 9

    Remove from heat and adjust the seasoning to taste. Decrease temperature on grill to 350 degrees F.
  • 10

    Stuff peppers with the rice mixture and place in a baking pan. Place pan on grill and cook peppers until very tender and the filling is heated through, 25 to 30 minutes.
  • 11

    Remove from grill and let rest for 10 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
