Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the broiler. Broil the chiles for about 5 minutes per side, or until the skin is blistered. Transfer to a bowl, cover with a towel and let cool slightly. Lower the oven temperature to 400°.

  • Heat the oil in a large skillet. Add the onion and cook over moderately high heat until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in the oregano, salt and cumin. Add the chorizo, black beans, tomato paste and water, reduce the heat to low and cook until warmed through, about 10 minutes.

  • Peel the chiles, slit them lengthwise and scrape out the seeds. Stuff the chiles with the black bean filling and arrange them in a large baking dish. Bake for 5 to 7 minutes, or until heated through. Transfer to plates, spoon the crème fraîche on top and serve.

Serve With

Corn tortillas.
