Instructions

Preheat the oven to 350°F.

Spread tomato sauce across the bottom of a 9×13” glass baking dish and set aside.

Cut the Poblano peppers in half lengthwise, leaving stems intact on one side. Remove the seeds and set aside.

Brown the chorizo in a large skillet over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until no longer pink. Remove from heat and drain excess fat from pan.

Add cream cheese, goat cheese, and ¼ cup Parmesan cheese to the skillet and stir until the cheese is melted and the sausage is thoroughly coated. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Carefully spoon the sausage mixture into the empty Poblano pepper halves and arrange in a prepared glass baking dish.

Sprinkle the remaining Parmesan cheese across the top of the peppers.

Place the baking dish into the pre-heated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until cheese is melted and peppers are heated through.

Remove from oven and serve immediately with additional tomato sauce and Parmesan cheese, if desired.
