Shrimp Stuffed Poblano Peppers

I am literally losing my mind! In excitement of course. I’ve been holding on to this recipe for a while. I think now is a good time to share it, don’t you?

I’m in a pretty good mood this morning – I mean it is Saturday after all. On top of that, I have the entire day to just lounge around and take some serious relaxation for myself. Something that is much needed by the way.

I think now is a good time to take advantage of my free time…

So I could capitalize on so many other opportunities I have coming up – before I start moving around again. In attempts to expand my brand, One Feisty Chef LLC, I’m now offering social media advertising/partnerships for companies that..

1.) Offers growth to my company’s resume,

2.) Compliments the products and services that I already offer,

And

3.) Can bring awareness to the importance of supporting small/local businesses.

On the outside OFC is just a small catering company – don’t be fooled. Behind these doors is a powerhouse bursting with ideas and opportunities that are being strategically mapped out. Just know this, when the doors opens your mind will be blown. #ExtremelyExcited

That’s why I decided to share this recipes with you all! Because it looks like a simple fried poblano pepper on the outside, BUT THE INSIDE…

OH…

it’s bursting with flavor!

I hope you enjoy this recipe and all that my company has to offer! 😜
