Egg & Turkey Stuffed Poblano

Egg & Turkey Stuffed Poblano


* Optional Substitution Note

Ingredients for 4 servings

  • Scramble
    • 4 eggs
    • 4 egg whites
    • 2 tablespoon coconut cream (or your choice of milk or Greek yogurt)
    • 1 shallot, diced (or 1/3 cup red onion diced)
    • 1 cup bell pepper, chopped
    • 1/2 lb 93% lean ground turkey
    • 1 teaspoon oregano
    • 1 teaspoon cumin
    • 2 cups raw spinach
  • 4 poblano peppers
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack (or reduced fat mozzarella)
  • Garnish
    • sea salt & pepper to taste
    • cilantro
    • 4 corn tostadas
    • fresh lime


Step 1

Set oven to 400F.

Step 2

Beat eggs, egg whites and cream (or milk). Set aside.

Step 3

Spray a nonstick skillet with olive oil and set on medium heat. Add shallot and bell pepper once the skillet is hot. Sear for 3 minutes or until the edges are brown.

Step 4

Add lean ground turkey and chop it up in the skillet. While it cooks, add oregano and cumin. Cook until the meat is no longer pink, about 5 minutes.

Step 5

Add spinach and mix continuously so it wilts, about 2 minutes.

Step 6

Increase heat to medium-high then pour in eggs. Using a spatula, pull the eggs across the skillet so it scrambles. Repeat this action until the eggs are cooked, about 3 minutes. Remove the skillet from the heat.

Step 7

Horizontally skim the top of a poblano pepper to create a large pocket. Remove the seeds with a spoon. Stuff the pepper with the scrambled eggs. Repeat.

Step 8

Place the peppers in a baking dish, then top each one with (your choice of) cheese.

Step 9

Bake in the oven for 15 minutes until the cheese has melted and the edges are brown. Pro-tip: for the final minute, set the oven to broil to brown the top of the peppers.

Step 10

Enjoy with tostada chips, cilantro and fresh lime.
