Easy Stuffed Poblano Pepper Skillet
Stuffed Poblano Pepper Skillet- poblano peppers sautéed with chili verde brown rice, pinto beans, and sweet corn. Quick, easy and so delicious! (gluten-free)
You guys, I’m beginning to think I should have born part Mexican. I don’t know what it is but I crave it at least once per week. Beans and rice, chips and salsa, tacos and margaritas, guac and…guac. It’s like my lifeline.
With summertime approaching, my Mexican foodie dreams have been aimed at stuffed poblano peppers. However the last thing I feel like doing is turning on the oven for 30+ minutes. Instead I decided to make a deconstructed skillet version that’s much friendlier on the ol’ electric bill.
This recipe comes together super quick thanks to Lundberg’s new Organic Sprouted Chili Verde Rice. It only takes 30-minutes to cook and it’s packed full of delicious flavor.
Some of you might be wondering: what’s the difference between sprouted and regular rice?
The process of sprouting (or allowing the seed to germinate) encourages enzyme activity that can make grains easier for some people to digest. It’s also thought to increase the bio-availability of vitamins and minerals, making them potentially more nutritious than grains that haven’t been sprouted.
Because they make up such a large part of my vegetarian diet, I try to keep out an eye out and buy grains sprouted whenever I can. I was stoked when I saw that Lundberg came out with a new line of vegan sprouted rices that are perfect to serve as a tasty side or to build a meal around. With flavors like Thai Red Curry, Toasted Coconut, Korean BBQ, and Vegetable Fried Rice, the possibilities are endless!
Now for the best part, the folks at Lundberg were kind enough to offer you guys a chance to win a gift pack so that you can try their new sprouted rice flavors for yourself! Here’s what you’ll receive if you win:
- Five (5) Varieties of Organic Sprouted Rice & Seasoning Mixes (which are also now in stores!)
- Lundberg Family Farms Rice Paddle
- $100 Whole Foods Grocery Gift Card
- 1.5 Quart Cuisinart Saucepan
All you have to do is leave me a comment below telling me which flavor you want to try first. I’ll randomly pick a winner one week from today and contact you via email. Good luck!

Stuffed Poblano Pepper Skillet
Yield: 4 servings
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 40 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes
1 (6 ounce) package Lundberg Organic Sprouted Chili Verde Rice
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 white onion, diced
2 poblano peppers, cored and diced
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 cup corn kernels
1 (15 ounce) can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
1 large tomato diced
juice of 1 lime
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese*

Prepare the rice according to package instructions. While the rice cooks, chop all of your vegetables and have them ready to go.
In a large skillet, add one tablespoon of olive oil and warm over medium heat. Add the onion and cook for 2-3 minutes, until translucent. Add the poblano pepper, garlic, and ground cumin then stir together and cook for another 3 minutes.

This recipe was created in partnership with Lundberg Family Farms but as always, all text and opinions are entirely my own. Thank you for supporting the brands I love that help me bring you quality content!
My husband has been asking for beans and rice lately and this looks so yummy! So colorful and cheesy! :) I have bought several of the Lundberg rice mixes (because they are GF), but I didn’t know they had sprouted mixes! So exciting!! I immediately gravitate toward the toasted coconut, but that Korean BBQ could be interesting…….really they all look fabulous!
I’d go for the Thai red curry first but they all sound good!
O the Koren BBQ sounds fantastic!
Cue the salivation, I’m officially craving stuffed poblanos for breakfast! Lundberg’s Chili Verde Sprouted Rice is sitting in my pantry right now, and I’m SO aiming to use it in this skillet! P.S. Have you tried the toasted coconut rice yet? It’s killer!
I would like to try the Vegetable Fried Rice.
Ooooh I want to win this one so bad! The chile verde would probably be the first one I’d try. All of them look amazing, as does this recipe. You’ve got me craving Mexican food so much now!
They all look great! I would like to try the vegetable fried rice flavor first.
I’ve wanted to try making gochujang paste for kimchi, but haven’t yet been able to find all of the ingredients, so my first choice would be the Korean BBQ rice! Fun products from a great company. Thanks for the intro, and cheers!
Toasted coconut rice sounds delicious!
Hmm – toasted coconut would be the first up! Thank you!
I would love the try the chili verde rice first because the recipe you posted for the Stuffed Poblano skillet sounds delicious and I would love to make it!!!
Thank you for the new product news and the recipe!!
I love anything sprouted and all these sounds amazing! I would love to try the chili verde using your recipe. This is my type of food! I also make Mexican food at least a few times per week, it’s our favoirte!
I don’t know. Maybe I would try the Korean BBQ or the Thai red curry…?
Korean B B Q rice sounds like something I’d love to try and experiment with!!! I really can’t wait to try them all!
Oh , those all look good, but I think I’d go for the Chili Verde first!
Oh, Thai Red Curry rice….yum!!
I love that these are sprouted! I’d love to try the vegetable fried rice flavor!
I love that they are sprouted and that healthy and easy do not have to be mutually exclusive. This is hard. While the Chile Verde looks fantastic, I think my first choice would be the Thai Red Curry rice. That sounds fun and I love curry!
Toasted Coconut would be first – I’ve started crisping up my rice with coconut oil before cooking it and it is one of my favorite flavors! Excited to try this one :)
Sounds delicious. I went to the Lundberg site to see what the ingredients are to the rice mixes but their site isn’t working properly. If I can eat them (not having any “natural flavoring” or soy in them, I’d try the Chili Verde in the recipe you posted today!
Lundberg quickly sent me a fact sheet and I can’t eat two of the mixes due to soy but my daughter could eat those. That leaves 3 for me to try of these mixes! I hadn’t heard of them till your post (Whole Foods is by my daughter’s so I only go there when I visit).
Oh boy they all sound super yummy, but since you have created a recipe for the chili verde I would go with that first and then…. The red curry for sure!
Currently looking for new vegetarian recipes and I’ve stumbled across your blog. Your blog is so resourceful!
I would love to try the Thai Red Curry!
Had to laugh at your part Mexican comment. I’ve always felt that way myself! I haven’t see these sprouted rices but I would definitely like to try them as I have a lot of issues digesting the regular ones.
Looks delicious!!! I would definitely try the Chile Verde first…in this recipe!!
korean bbq rice sounds delish
I would love to try the toasted coconut rice!
Chile Verde!!! Mexican food is a staple in our house!

I’ve been on a Caribbean kick lately, so I definitely want to try the toasted coconut first. They all look really good though, so it’s a tough call.
I love love this company and your receipes , cant wait to find these new sprouted ones. I think they all look great I will love to try the coconut one first thanks . |Can not wait to make this receipe. thanks
I would like the vegetable fried rice flavor
Girl I hear you, I make Mexican dinners AT LEAST once a week (usually more like 2 or 3!). It’s just so easy to throw together healthy meals with rices, beans, avocado, etc. I’m obsessed with Lundberg Farms’ brown rice and have been food prepping by making a big pile of it at the start of the week!
oh, to make only one choice…Toasted Coconut Rice! We would cook all of them and host a rice sampler event!
Thank you so much for all the wonderful gluten-free recipes! I was recently diagnosed with celiac disease and I’m totally stoked to find so many delicious (and MEXICAN!!!) dishes! I’d love to try the chili verde rice!

Um yum! That recipe looks amazing and I can’t pick I want them all!!!!!
Toasted Coconut with Spicy Grilled Fish
This is brilliant!! I know (for my tummys sake) I should be eating sprouted grains but I can’t for the life of me just get myself to do it at home. So if I can buy it, all the better! ;) I would naturally gravitate towards the Thai curry but the Korean bbq intrigues me. I’ve never had Korean food so I pick that :)
Ohhhhh they all sound amazing but I would definitely try the toasted coconut rice first! Thanks for the great giveaway : )
I’d like to try chili verde rice… and/or the toasted coconut, mmm!
I am most interested in the Korean BBQ variety. The Chili Verde comes in a close second.
I would like to try the Coconut. Coconut is one of my favorite flavors!! It reminds me of a vacation. Thank you for the giveaway and for the great recipes you post.
I want to try the toasted coconut version!
I want to try the recipe you posted, so my choice would be the chili verde. Thanks for the chance to win such awesomeness! I’m headed to the store to see if they carry this because the coconut one is intriguing also.
This meal looks incredible, because I think I was born part Mexican! Seriously, I can never get enough. :) I’d love this meal and can’t wait to try the Lundberg rice! Which flavor to choose is difficult — it would be a toss up between the chile verde and coconut!
I’d be all over the chili verde flavor, but wouldn’t say no to trying any of the varieties. Thanks so much for the great content!

Oh my goodness, we love Lundberg rice and this looks delicious!! It would be a toss up between Thai Curry, Korean BBQ, and the coconut! They all look good so it would really depends on my mood when I but them. Buyou them all but whatever my mood was I would make first! Adding to my WFM list.

On a different note, I love your healthy peanut butter chocolate candy bars! Awesome. I like them so much that I’m giving small ones to my friends with a handmade mug rug as a good bye gift. I know they will love them!
Thanks for all you do.
I went to the Lundberg site before even reading about the giveaway, just to see about that Chili Verde rice…yummo!! Then I saw all the others they have….I’d like to try quite a few, but the FIRST one I’d like to try is the Black Beans and Rice. I just love that combo…..

Ohhhh now this looks gorgeous! Lundberg has been my go-to rice for years, but I haven’t seen their sprouted mixes anywhere so I’m guessing they haven’t made their way to Canadaland yet. I’ll keep an eye out! And the toasted coconut sounds amazing. I’ve always loved the combo of rice and coconut, so that’s one I’d definitely love to try.
Koren BBQ sounds out of this world good!!
I’d love to try toasted coconut rice, yum!

I want to try Korean BBQ Rice first out of the flavors but they all look yummy.
Haha, I’m pretty sure I should have been born part Mexican too! My dad owned a Mexican restaurant when I was growing up, so I attribute my love of Mexican food to that!

Congrats to you and your husband, Tammy! I wish you both many more years of health and happiness. :)
This looks absolutely delicious! Like you, I love Mexican and my kids wonder if I have some Mexican blood running through my veins. I was looking for a healthy recipe that uses Poblano Peppers. Wow! This is amazing and I will be trying this today! Also, I have never sprouted rice. Where can they be purchased? I am interested in trying the Chili Verdre Rice. Is this brand of rice sold at regular grocery stores or only at Whole Food type stores?
Thanks for sharing
Hi Jean! Lundberg’s sprouted rice is usually found at health food stores like Whole Foods or Earth Fare. However you can also buy it online on Amazon but it is much more expensive there. You might also be able to request it at your local grocery store. Some stores are great will order things for you! :)
I just received some poblanos today from our church produce drop. This looks delish!
I’d love to try the vegetable fried rice. Would be perfect with stir fry veggies.
I used red chili beans with chili sauce, Serrano and poblano roasted peppers, and Kong’s ranch chicken, topped it with taco blend cheese it is a fiesta in the oven thank you so much for posting this❤️
Would love to try the Chile Verde!!
Where are the nutrient facts? You said it was for 1/4 of recipe, but I can’t find.
Made this with Lundberg Spanish rice and added tortilla straps under vegan cheese on top to add some crunch. This is so easy and delicious!!
This is amazing. Really easy to make and so flavorful. I didn’t have the sprouted rice but used what I had at home. Easy to make. Thank you so much for sharing your recipe!
