Wow, talk about amazingly good. The heck with the main dish, just load me up on some of these Cajun shrimp-stuffed poblano peppers. A slight kick of heat, perfect shrimp and creamy melted cheese. What’s not to love? You could use green bell peppers instead, if you want. I love poblanos because they are a little spicier than a bell pepper without just completely drowning out a dish in heat.
For extra kick, substitute shredded pepper jack cheese for the feta and mozzarella and add a few diced roasted jalapenos into the shrimp mixture. That’ll definitely liven up the party.
Ok, that’s it. I’m officially giving up fried onion rings. And fried pickles. From here on, it’s these fried poblano strips for me and nothing else. They have that nice crunch you get from panko breadcrumbs. And they have that nice little kick from the poblanos and cayenne. Not really hot, just a great spiciness.
I served these little treasures on top of a grilled ribeye steak. But of course you could eat fried poblano strips as a side or even an appetizer, served with a cool Ranch dipping sauce.
