4 servings

Ingredients

4  large  poblano, bell or hatch peppers, sliced lengthwise and seed removed

1/2  c.  Hill Country Fare Refried Beans, regular, jalapeño or fat free

2  H-E-B Fajita Seasoned Chicken Breasts

1  c.  H-E-B Shredded Jalapeño Jack Cheese

1  jar (12 oz.)  H-E-B Salsa (optional)

Instructions


Prepare charcoal or gas grill for cooking (375°F). Spray a vegetable or mesh grilling rack with no-stick cooking spray and set aside.

Place peppers skin side down on hot grill and cook for 2 to 3 minutes until pepper skin is charred. Remove from grill and wrap in foil; set aside.

Grill chicken breasts until fully cooked (about 8 minutes per side) and juices run clear.

While chicken breasts are cooking, peel blacken skins off pepper halves and rinse under cold water; pat dry. Spread 2 Tablespoons of refried beans in each pepper half; and set aside.

Chop chicken breasts and combine with shredded cheese in a bowl. Stuff 8 pepper halves with 1/3 cup chicken cheese mixture (press chicken mixture into pepper).

Arrange the stuffed pepper halves on prepared grilling rack and place on grill. Cover grill and cook for 6 to 8 minutes until cheese melts. Top with 2 Tablespoons salsa and enjoy.
