It’s easy to prepare a flavorful and nutritious meal if you know where to start. Brunch Stuffed Poblanos are delicious, a cinch to make, and a great way to wake up with spicy chiles and energy-inducing protein that will fuel you all day long.
People often tell me that they struggle to prepare meals that are both nutritious and delicious. What is healthy, they say, is often not so tasty. But the truth is that any dish can be nutritious and delicious if you include the right balance of ingredients. For our Brunch Stuffed Poblanos, the star ingredient is the eggs. I used Eggland’s Best eggs for their health benefits: they have 10 times the Vitamin E, double the omega-3’s, and 4 times the Vitamin D compared to ordinary eggs. They also contain 25% less saturated fat.
The other healthy but tasty ingredients in this power-packed recipe are poblano peppers, potatoes, and fresh pico. Poblanos are wonderful in this dish, adding a mild spice as well as 4 grams of fiber and 2 grams of protein per chile. The potato hash, with anti-inflammatory garlic, antioxidant-filled olive oil, and vitamin rich parsley is both nutrient dense and flavorful. Topping the poblanos off with pico de gallo adds freshness and extra spice bite after bite.
