  • 1 pound ground chicken, beef, or pork
  • 1 yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 poblano peppers, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • kosher salt and black pepper
  • 2 jars (12 ounces) salsa verde

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°.
  2. In a large oven-safe skillet, combine the olive oil, meat, onion, and peppers. Cook, breaking up the meat as it cooks, until browned, about 5 minutes. Add the chili powder, paprika, and garlic powder, 1 cup water, 1 jar salsa verde, and season with salt. Simmer 5-8 minutes. Mix in the cream cheese until creamy.

  4. Top with the remaining shredded cheese. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until the cheese has melted.
  5. Serve warm, drizzled with yogurt mixed with lime and salt. Top with avocado, cilantro, chopped green onions, and jalapeños. Enjoy!
