Move oven rack to 6 inches below the broiler. Preheat broiler on high.
Cut poblanos in half and toss with oil. Place poblanos cut side down on a 9-inch round cake pan. Set the timer to 4 minutes. You want to cook these until the outsides are charred and blistered.
Meanwhile in a 10-inch saute pan on high heat, cook ground beef until it is almost cooked through. Add 1.5 tablespoons taco seasoning. Cook until the beef is cooked through. Mix in chopped cilantro and set aside.
Remove poblanos from the oven. Fill each poblano half with ground beef. Top with cheese. Return the poblanos to the oven and broil for 2-3 minutes until the cheese has melted and is bubbly. Garnish with additional cilantro if desired and serve.
Tips And Tricks For Making This Stuffed Poblano Peppers Recipe
You can make up the poblanos and seasoned meat ahead of time and only assemble 1, 2 or all four halves, as needed.
Don’t bother stuffing each poblano. Simply place the roasted poblanos flat in the cake pan. Spread taco meat over the poblanos, top with cheese and cilantro and broil.
If you have time, you can roast the peppers whole and stuff them whole. But this way works faster, by just laying them flat and layering them with beef and cheese.
Air frying is also an excellent way to roast these peppers. Just cook them for 400F for 4-5 minutes and then check to see if they're roasted. Cook them for an additional 1-2 minutes if necessary and make sure to spray them with oil before air frying them.
You can also cook the Stuffed Poblano Peppers in the air fryer once they've been stuffed. Cook them at 350F for 5 minutes.
