My friend Kyle sent me a picture on Facebook of some stuffed and smoked Pablano peppers. I had to try it out. Definitely glad I did. They’re essentially a giant Atomic Buffalo Turd stuffed with leftover pulled pork and red onions. VERY mild. Practically no heat.
I’m guessing at this because I only made a few while I was making some Atomic Buffalo Turds. If you’re making a batch of ABTs, save some of your cream cheese mixture and buy a couple extra Pablano peppers.
· Pablano peppers, halved and seeded (about 6)
· 2 – 8 oz. packages of cream cheese
· 1 cup + ¼ cup shredded cheddar cheese
· 1 tsp garlic powder
· 1 tsp onion powder
· ¼ cup diced red onion
· 2 pineapple chunks per pepper half (optional)
· 1 slice of bacon per pepper half
· Leftover pulled pork (cooked hamburger or sausage would work great!)
Sorry I can’t be more specific on the recipe here. Like I said, I used leftovers from some ABTs.
Cut the Pablano peppers lengthwise and remove the seeds.
Mix the cream cheese, cheddar cheese, garlic and onion powder. Stuff the cheese mixture into the Pablano pepper, but don’t fill it up. Stuff the rest of the pepper with your leftover pulled pork. You could use browned hamburger or sausage as a substitute. Add some diced red onion and top with some extra cheddar cheese. The original recipe had a couple of chunks of pineapple in it but I didn’t have any. I think it would be tasty! Wrap the stuffed Pablano pepper with a slice of bacon.
Smoke at 225 degrees for 2 ½ hours with alder or hickory wood.
