  • Servings:


  • 4 medium poblano peppers
  • 1 lb shrimp (large, raw)

  3. Preheat your oven to 400F and preheat a skillet with the olive oil. Add the minced garlic then cook until fragrant before adding the cauliflower rice. Season with salt and pepper, then cook on high until browned.
  4. Transfer the cooked cauliflower rice to a bowl then squeeze half of the lime over the top. Sprinkle on the cilantro then mix together.
  5. Mix the garlic powder, old bay seasoning, salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper with the cream cheese.
  6. Stuff the shrimp, cauliflower rice, and cream cheese into each pepper. Place onto a baking sheet and top with the Monterey Jack cheese. Bake for 20 minutes or until the cheese is nicely melted and browned.?
