ass of fire poblanos

i'm not a recipe person. i mean i read them and sometimes follow them, but most of the time i look at cook books, figure out the gist of what's being done, and improvise. it's pretty risky of me, but i haven't had a disaster yet.

this dish is from a Bush's baked bean recipe. you're supposed to stuff poblano peppers with standard baked beans and cover it all in cheese. i veganized it by using vegetarian baked beans, adding garlic, cumin, bragg's, and pickled jalapenos. i stuffed a bell pepper and a poblano with the mixture, and baked for 40 minutes at 350. i topped the peppers with soy sour cream and my special "ass of fire" raw salsa. i don't really have a recipe for that either, i just puree a bunch of tomatoes, cilantro, olive oil, cinnamon-(YES, cinnamon), bragg's, lemon juice, peppers, onions, and some magic and it always turns out really yummy. this time i threw in a red chili pepper and it was SMOKIN' hot! seriously, my nose was running. i need to figure out an exact recipe because i'm entering a salsa contest at the end of the month.

Looks great! I totally agree that cinnamon is essential in a salsa! Sometimes cocoa too.

I had to come and check out your peppers, too. We definitely used really different recipes, but I think your peppers look amazing! Anything with sour cream automatically trumps anything without sour cream.

Must've been a fun night in your house after eating all those beans and that "Ass of fire" salsa.
