Poblano Peppers

Poblano peppers are a large, mild chili pepper that originated in Puebla, Mexico. They are ideal for stuffing with a variety of ingredients & most often served in main dish applications. Poblanos register on the Scoville Scale, a chart specifically designed to gauge the heat level of peppers, typically around 1,500 compared to serranos which hit a whopping 10,000 to 23,000. Bell peppers fall at the bottom of the chart with a rating of zero while jalapeños can reach up to 10,000 & habaneros fall mid-range with a rating between 100,000 to 350,000 in comparison. In general, larger peppers tend to be much more mild. When dried, poblanos are referred to as anchos. They pair well with eggs & may be used in mole sauces. Learn how to roast poblano peppers that may be used in a variety of classic Mexican dishes.

How To Roast Poblano Peppers 

When handling poblano peppers, always wear a pair of disposable gloves as the flesh & oils may irritate the skin which translates to a tingling sensation on the tips of your fingers without them. Always keep a box handy in the kitchen to use for a variety of cooking tasks. Roasting the peppers is a relatively simple task that will ready them for a variety of tempting recipes.
