Roasted Poblano and Cheddar Frittata for Two

serves two


  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 poblano pepper, roasted
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt (or more to taste)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper, or more to taste
  • 1/4 cup minced cilantro or parsley
  • 1/4 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
  • 4 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 avocado, sliced


  1. Preheat your broiler.
  2. Roast the poblano pepper in your broiler, using tongs to turn carefully until all sides are blackened. Set pepper in a paper bag to steam for 5 minutes. Remove the skin, stem, and seeds under cold running water. Mince pepper and set aside.
  3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  4. Heat a small ovenproof 8-inch skillet over medium high heat. Melt the butter and add the shallots, cooking until soft. Add the poblano pepper, sea salt, pepper, red pepper, and cayenne; stir to combine. Turn heat to low, sprinkle on the cheese, and then quickly pour on the beaten eggs. Sprinkle with a little more salt, the cilantro, and slide frittata into the oven.
  5. Bake for 5 – 7 minutes, or until the eggs have set and the frittata has puffed up a bit.
  6. Finish frittata with a pinch of red pepper flakes and minced cilantro, slice, and serve with a sliced avocado.
