What are Sonora peppers?
Sonora peppers can be used in many ways, but the most popular preparation is stuffing due to their large size and mild flavor. Their thick skin also makes them great for drying, as they can be used as a spice rub on meats or added to soups and stews for extra flavor without much heat.
A regular Anaheim pepper is the closest match if you’re looking for a large, mild pepper to stuff. You can also try poblano peppers, which have a different flavor profile but a similar size. Bell peppesr might be more suitable if you want something closer to zero spice.
