Chile Relleon (dairy/gluten free + paleo + whole30)

So you know when you crave something and have to basically run to the store to get the stuff?! That is basically what happened here. I had been craving some Mexican food and well we live in Colorado now so there isn’t many ‘authentic’ places here. I so badly wanted homemade red sauce and I wanted it flaaaavor flaaaav [anyone get my reference?] Honestly as much as I love authentic Mexican food sometimes it tears my stomach up because of the diary and other things that they smother on. So sometimes I’d much rather save the pain and cook it myself, so I know exactly what’s in it plus share it with you guys!

A few things – this recipe would go great with some fresh margaritas  + some homemade paleo tortillas [hint hint… I’ll be sharing my recipe for those this week] I know I’m so mean for making you guys wait but it will be worth it, promise.

No crazy talk on this blog, I’m getting right to the point today!



For Peppers:

1lb ground turkey/chicken

4-5 poblano peppers

1 red bell pepper

1 small yellow onion

4-5 eggs

1 avocado

2 green onions

1 tbsp oil/ghee

For red sauce:

3 garlic cloves,

1/2 onion

1 tsp oregano

3 tbsp chili powder

1 tbsp paprika

1 tbsp cumin

1 can fire roasted tomatoes

1 jalepeno


Preheat oven for 375

Heat oil/ghee in skillet over medium heat, sautee onions & bell pepper until onion is slightly translucent. Add ground meat to brown. While meat is cooking – In a food processor pulse together all ingredients for red sauce until it reaches a smooth consistency.


Slice the poblano peppers down one side and across like a ‘T’ shape, spoon out seeds. Once meat is done stuff peppers with meat mixture & place in a greased casserole dish. Pour red sauce mixture over peppers and bake for 20 mins, crack eggs over each pepper, turn oven to broil and cook for another 6-8 mins [depending on how well done you want your eggs]. Remove from oven let cool for 10 mins and top with avocado, green onions and cheese if you like.

ENJOY. They will rock your socks offff.
