The Amazing Rice: Rice, Chorizo, Shrimp Stuffed Poblanos

My rice journey continues with these scrumptious stuffed poblanos. I had chorizo in my fridge, so when I stumbled across this recipe I knew I had to make it. The chorizo is cooked with spicy and sweet peppers making for a flavorful rice base. Shrimp is stirred in at the last minute adding a surf-and-turf layer to the dish. Although the recipe doesn't call for it, I mixed a couple of tablespoons of cheese in with the rice before stuffing the peppers. The final stuffed pepper is a meal in itself that would be delicious at a Mexican fiesta. To see how I made it,

This being mexican try some crumbled Queso Fresco or some Queso Blanco on top - it's more authentic and less artery clogging, per above post, plus half the calories ;-)

This is a fairly tough food/wine pairing. I would suggest a Bordeaux Blanc. The Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon blend will get you the right stuff to battle the spice and the body. Cheers, Angela
