This is a very easy tip on how to roast and peel Poblano chiles.
First turn your stove on high heat and put the chile right over the fire.
Roast it all around until it is completely roasted. I’m using my hands, but you can use some tweezers or a fork so you don’t burn your fingers.
It’s almost done, it’s very quickly. You can hear it sounds almost like popcorn
Then just put it in a plastic bag and cover it with a kitchen towel.
So, as the chile is still warm, it will keep on cooking a little longer.
Once it’s completely roasted put the chile under water. And there you can peel it off.
If you put a little bit of oil in your hands that will prevent the chile from irritating your fingers
You can see how easy it comes out.
It’s now ready to make some filled chiles or some tasty rajas.
Now, I used her recipe using different tools than she did, but it still comes out great.
