10 Ways to Use Poblano Peppers

Poblano peppers are a large dark green pepper that starts out blocky near the stem and then tapers to a blunt point near the bottom of the pepper. They are less spicy than a Jalapeno. They grow well in Minnesota and we have a great crop this year. The inch of rain we got Saturday night really perked up the plants and I expect them to fill out the upper course of peppers. They are relatively tall plants and easy to pick.

  1. Chiles Rellenos, is a Mexican dish that originate in Puebla. You stuff and roast a fresh polano pepper. Sometimes other peppers are used such as Jalapenos. Our poblano peppers are very large making the stuffing easlier.
  2. They are great with cooked and fresh salsa. It is easier to remove the seeds than Jalapeno's so you can make the salsa mild or use more.
  3. Poblano jam with your favorite fruit like Raspberries or Strawberries.
  4. Dried poblanos. Make poblano chipotles. Very popular.
  5. Poblano corn chowder.
  6. Poblano frittata.
  7. Acorn Squash with Poblano Butter Topping
  8. Quinoa Stuffed Poblanos
  9. Guacamole-stuffed Poblano 
  10. Poblano Peach Ice Cream
