Poblano Peppers Stuffed With Goat Cheese Mashed Potatoes

A delicious and hearty vegetarian dish.

Serves 8people
poblano peppers
medium-sized potatoes, peeled (about 2 lbs)
cup buttermilk
oz can diced green chiles, drained
tbsp unsalted butter
oz package goat cheese, crumbled
tsp salt
tsp pepper
Bring large pot of salted water to boil. Peel potatoes and cut into 2-inch pieces. Put in pot of water to boil for 20 minutes or until fork tender.
While potatoes are boiling, prepare poblanos. Preheat grill to 350 to 400 degrees. Grill peppers, without grill lid, 5 minutes on each side until peppers looks blistered. If you do not have a grill but do have a gas stove then you can use my method. Turn one gas burner on medium high heat and set the pepper over the flame. Let roast over the open flame for about 5 minutes on each side until blistered. Turn peppers using kitchen tongs. Worked like a charm.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit. Place peppers in large zip-loc freezer bag and seal. Let them sit in the bag for about 10 minutes to loosen the skins. Remove from bag and carefully peel the skins off each pepper. Cut each pepper lengthwise down one side being careful to not cut through to the other side. Discard seeds and membranes.
Mash potatoes with either a potato masher or a mixer. Stir in buttermilk, butter, chiles and half of goat cheese. Salt and pepper to taste.
Fill poblanos with the mashed potatoes and top peppers with remaining goat cheese. Place peppers on aluminum foil lined baking sheet and put in oven to bake until goat cheese is melted and slightly browned (10 to 15 minutes). Garnish each pepper with a sprinkle of paprika.
