Servings: 7-8
Preparation Time: Approximately 1 hour

Heat oven to 400° F.

Rinse poblano peppers and coat in 2 tablespoons coconut oil. Place in casserole dish (side by side) and place in oven, turning over when outside becomes “roasted” and skin begins to blister. Once both sides are roasted, remove from oven to cool. (Should take about 10-15 minutes per side.)

Meanwhile, cook beef with 1 tablespoon coconut oil, chopped onion, one chopped poblano, and 1 teaspoon cumin powder. Cook until beef is done and onions and peppers are tender.

When baked poblanos are cool enough to touch, slice lengthwise on one side, leaving in casserole dish. Remove the stem and seeds, and scoop out any remaining seeds carefully with a spoon. Stuff each poblano with ground beef mixture, and top with grated cheese.

Using same pan that beef was cooked in, add remaining 2 tablespoons coconut oil and flour, stirring over low-medium heat. Add water, tomato sauce, chili powder, garlic and salt, stirring until chili sauce thickens. Pour sauce over beef and cheese stuffed poblanos. Cook another 15 minutes.

Remove from oven to cool slightly before serving. Garnish with olives, fresh avocados, and sour cream, if desired.

Servings: 16 pinwheels
Preparation Time: 20 minutes

  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon psyllium husk powder
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 2 ounces cream cheese, softened at room temperature
  • 2 jalapeno peppers, finely chopped

Pre-heat oven to 400° F.

Mix dry ingredients in a bowl, combine well. Add the butter and eggs, mix thoroughly until mixture resembles breadcrumbs.

Boil the water and add to the mixture a bit at a time, stirring thoroughly until you have a dough. Cut the dough into four pieces. Roll each quarter into a ball then place each one on a strip of parchment paper. Place another strip of parchment paper over each dough ball and roll each one out into rectangles about 8 x 4 inches each.

Trim any edges and spread the cream cheese over the strip. Sprinkle the chopped jalapeno over the cream cheese. Using the parchment paper base, take one end and roll up the dough like a Swiss roll, keeping it fairly tight. Cut the dough into half, then half again. This will make your pinwheel shape.

Place the pinwheel face down on a parchment paper lined baking tray. Bake for 20 minutes, turning over after 10 minutes.
