HelloFresh Review: Pork Chili ’n’ Cheese Stuffed Poblanos with Black Beans, Fresh Salsa & Smoky Red Pepper Lime Crema
Tonight we are reviewing HelloFresh's stuffed chili meal. OK, I'll admit, I saved this one as our very last HelloFresh dinner for the week. For some reason, it just sounded like it would be a ho-hum kind of meal. Fortunately, I was wrong--we loved it!
So, this meal was supposed to look like this (according to the Hello Fresh instructions):
You can see my meal looks almost nothing like this. The problem is that the poblanos that were included in my meal were about half the size of the ones shown in their instructions. Here's what their peppers looked like (keep in mind that this is only 2 servings, and mine is 4):
And here is what mine looked like--twice as many, and on my smallest cookie sheet:
There is no way I could have stuffed these with the ingredients that this recipe made. So, I improvised and sliced up the poblanos and made a skillet, instead.
After adding the sliced peppers to the "stuffing" ingredients, I just sprinkled the cheese on top and covered it for a few minutes until it melted. Delicious! My husband and I agreed that this meal would be great served with rice. We really liked the flavor, and although this meal said it was "medium" in difficulty, I thought it was pretty easy to prepare.
Bottom line, this is one of the better meals we've had--I would recommend!
Including a link to the recipe on the HelloFresh site, because I am definitely going to try and recreate this on my own again! Give it a try!
Husband: 8.75 or 9
Son: 7 (don't put too much stock in his rating--this is high for him, considering it was served with pico and had poblanos as a key ingredient!)
(my daughter was at a friend's house tonight) - Update: she had the leftovers for lunch and says this one is a 9!
