I am still a little sore about the tooth extractions, but I decided to take a break from the ice in my mouth to post this recipe for the weekend for you to enjoy!

This dish is very versatile.
You can have it as a Main dish with some warm corn tortillas.
-If you want to see how to make your own corn tortillas Visit Scarletta Bakes She has beautiful pictures too! :D-
Or you can have it as a Snack serving them with “Totopos” or Chips and believe me they’ll be a hit!
Everyone will think you spent hours in the kitchen making them, but really it’s not going to take you more than one hour. 🙂

7-8 Poblano peppers (you can alternate this, but not less than 5)
1 onion thickly sliced
1 cup drained canned corn seeds
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/2  tablespoon of pepper
1/2 tablespoon chicken soup powder (granules)
2 (250 ml) Mexican media crema

You have to roast the poblano peppers, place the peppers on a large griddle over medium-high heat.
Roast until the skin turns black.
Remove peppers from griddle and place in a Ziploc bag, allowing them to sweat for 5 minutes.
Transfer to a plate to cool.
Peel and discard the outer skin of the peppers, halve length-wise and remove the seeds and veins. Slice into thick strips. Set aside.

Now you have to cut the onion, heat a saucepan over medium-high heat and add the vegetable oil with the onion.

  3. Interesting recipe! I don’t think I’ve ever cooked with poblano peppers or Mexican crema. I love the step-by-step pictures too. I’d like to try making my own tortillas. Have you made your own before?.
