Instructions

Mashed Sweet Potatoes

  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. Poke the potatoes with a fork and wrap them in foil. Place them in the oven and bake for 40-45 minutes or until soft. Remove the potatoes from the oven (leave the oven on) and let them cool for just a minute before removing them the foil. Scoop the flesh from the potatoes into a bowl.
  • Also to the bowl with the sweet potatoes, add the maple syrup, cayenne pepper, smoked paprika, goat's cheese, and milk. Mash the ingredients together until smooth and season to taste with salt and black pepper. Cover to keep them warm while you prepare your other ingredients. Alternatively, you can put them in a warm oven to keep warm.

Stuffed Poblano Peppers

  • Cut a sliver off the top of the poblano peppers lengthwise, so that you form a "boat." Remove the seeds. Set aside in a shallow baking dish.
  • In a large bowl, combine the chicken, corn kernels, cream cheese, monterey jack cheese, and salsa. Fold the ingredients together until evenly coated. Season to taste with salt and black pepper. Scoop the mixture into the poblano boats. Place the poblano peppers in the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes or until the top is slightly brown, the cheese is melted, and the peppers are soft. Remove from oven, and let stand for a few minutes.

Green Cabbage Slaw

  • While the peppers are baking, prepare your slaw. In a small bowl, whisk together the sour cream, grapeseed oil, honey, lime juice and a dash of salt and black pepper. Add the cabbage, green onions, and cilantro. Toss to coat. Season to taste and set aside to allow the flavors to meld.
