Vegetable-stuffed peppers

6 poblano chilies, roasted, peeled, see note

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 sweet potatoes, peeled, cut into 3-inch-long thin strips

1/2 teaspoon salt

Freshly ground pepper

3 cups ranchero sauce, see recipe

1/4 cup crumbled cotija or feta cheese

Makes 6 servings.

Make a lengthwise slit in each roasted chili; remove seeds and inner membranes. Keep warm.

Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat; add the sweet potatoes. Cook 4 minutes. Add zucchini and yellow squash; cook, stirring, until softened, about 8 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Stuff each chili with vegetable mixture; place each on a plate. Top each with ranchero sauce; sprinkle with cheese.

Note: Roast poblanos under broiler or over an open flame until skin chars. Transfer to paper bag to cool; peel off skins.
