  • 4 large poblano peppers, halved and seeded
  • 2 (15 ounce) cans BUSH’S Black Bean Fiesta™
  • 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese, plus more if desired
  • For serving:
  • Fresh grape tomatoes, halved
  • Diced red onion
  • Diced avocado
  • Greek yogurt


  1. Preheat grill to medium heat, or around 375 degrees F.
  2. There are two options for making these stuffed poblano peppers: you can either make two foil packs to hold the peppers, or use a greased cast iron skillet. For the foil pack, simply place peppers on a large sheet of foil and roll up the ends up the foil to secure peppers. You may need to use two foil packets for this to fit all the peppers. Alternatively you can grease two cast iron skillets and use that instead.
  3. Place pepper halves in foil packs or cast iron skillets arranging so that they fit well and aren’t falling over. Add beans to each pepper half, being careful not to overfill. Top with shredded cheese.
  4. To grill: place foil packet or cast iron directly on grill and grill for 20-25 minutes or until peppers are fork tender. It’s okay if some of the beans spill over the edges of the pepper, they’ll still be delicious!
  5. Once done serve immediately and top with tomatoes, onions, avocado and yogurt, if desired. Use a fork and knife to eat. Serves 4, 2 pepper halves each.
