Rice Stuffed Poblano Peppers with Woodwork Chardonnay

Weeknight dinners are tough! Yes, I know I don't have fifty two children to feed, but sometimes I look at up at 4p and go !@#$%^&!!! I have no plan for dinner. For someone who HATES peppers, I have taken quite a hankering to a new recipe:Rice Stuffed Poblano Peppers. Originally from Blue Apron, I have made this recipe three times, I am obsessed. This is also a great recipe to will in fall as we are still enduring 90 degree temps in Florida. Trust me, this is an easy weeknight dinner to make!

Ingredients
½ Cup Long Grain White Rice
3 Cloves Garlic
1 Bunch Cilantro
1 Lime
1 Yellow Onion
2 Poblano Peppers
10 Ounces Ground Beef
3 Tablespoons Dried Currants
3 Tablespoons Roasted Pepitas
2 Tablespoons Tomato Paste
2 Teaspoons Ground Cumin
¼ Cup Mexican Crema

It is a tad spicy though and I have an amazing pairing! Woodwork™ Chardonnay, new from Diageo Chateau & Estates. There is a nice fruity balance that takes the bite out of the spicy poblano.

Woodwork™ is the latest brand that celebrates the craft of winemaking with the introduction of three varietals meant to inspire and celebrate those who work hard to endlessly pursue their passions.

Each bottle reflects Winemaker Monica Belavic’s passions and pursuit, through continuous experimentation and refinement, to arrive at the very best batch of wine. With great care and attention to detail, high quality oak staves (a barrel alternative) have been selected to bring the influence of oak into each varietal’s distinct taste profile, creating a unique and delicious wine.  The oak influencer also allows the wine to pair beautifully with items cooked on the grill or over a fire.

The finest grapes were selected to create three Central Coast grown varietals delivering prominent oak influence including a 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon, 2013 Pinot Noir and 2013 Chardonnay.  The wines are available in stores nationwide and online at www.woodworkwines.com and sold at the SRP of $14.99.

Cheers!
