Roast the poblano peppers
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Halve and core the poblano peppers lengthwise. Place the poblano peppers, cut-sides down, on a lined sheet pan and drizzle with oil; season with ⅓ of the spice blend and S&P. Roast, flipping halfway through, 14 to 16 minutes, until softened and browned. Transfer to a plate.

Start the filling
While the poblano peppers roast, quarter the zucchini lengthwise; thinly slice crosswise. In a large, high-sided pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Add the zucchini and sauté, stirring occasionally, 4 to 5 minutes, until most of the liquid from the zucchini has evaporated. Transfer to a bowl and reserve the pan.

Make the slaw
While the zucchini cooks, quarter the lime. Roughly chop the cilantro leaves and stems. In a large bowl, add the juice from up to ½ the lime wedges (to taste) and 3 tbsp olive oil (double for 4 portions); season with S&P to taste. Stir to combine thoroughly. Add the cabbage and up to ½ the cilantro (to taste). Toss well.

Finish the filling
In the reserved pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Add the garlic; sauté, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, until fragrant. Add the ground beef* and tomato paste; season with ½ the remaining spice blend and S&P. Cook, breaking up the meat with a spoon, 4 to 6 minutes, until cooked through. Add the sautéed zucchini; season with the remaining spice blend and S&P. Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, until the flavours have combined.

Stuff the peppers & serve
In a small bowl, season the crema with S&P; stir to combine thoroughly. Spoon as much of the beef-zucchini filling as possible into the roasted poblano peppers. Serve any remaining filling on the side. Divide the stuffed poblano peppers between your plates. Top them with as much remaining cilantro as you’d like. Garnish the slaw with the pepitas and the dish with the remaining lime wedges. Serve the seasoned crema and slaw on the side. Bon appétit!
