You can top it with cheese if you like. Try serving at your next gathering, your family and friends will love it.


  • 1 pound chorizo sausage
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 cup canned black beans
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 6 leaves fresh basil, chopped
  • nonstick cooking spray
  • 4 medium poblano peppers, halved lengthwise and seeded
  • ¼ cup shredded Cheddar cheese, or to taste


Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir chorizo and onion in the hot skillet until meat is browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes. Add beans and corn; mix well. Turn heat to medium-low and add basil. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.

Fill poblano peppers evenly with the chorizo mixture. Top with Cheddar cheese.

Bake in the preheated oven until cheese melts, about 10 minutes.
