RAJAS CON QUESO MEXICAN FOOD
- 6 poblano peppers I have a family of 6, so you can add more or less
- 1 can corn
- 1/2-1 cup mozzarella cheese
- 3/4 cup sour cream
- 2 garlic minced
- 2 tsp chicken bouillon
- 2 tbsp butter or margarine
- 1/2 medium onion diced.
Roast the peppers until the skin blisters and turns black , we put them in a plastic bag to sweat to be able to remove the skin.I do this directly in the stove, but you can do it in a pan or in the oven as well. (if you want to do it in the oven you turn your oven on a 500F put your peppers on a cookie sheet until you see the skin blisters and turns black, and continue with the next steps.
after 10 minutes or so, put some gloves so we can remove the skin and seeds from the peppers. I really recommend to use them so your hands don't get spicy, and peel them, and remove the top part of the Poblano Pepper and the seeds.
cut your Poblano pepper in slices. if you want to, you can help the peppers not to be so spicy doing the following trick:
in a pan add water 1 tbsp of vinegar and 2 tbsp of sugar and let it boil, clean your peppers so you don't have any seeds before adding them to the boiling water,clean them under rinse water.
once is boiling add the poblano pepper in slices and let it be there for around 10 minutes. remove them and throw away the water, and continue with the recipe.
in a pan big enough, add the butter and melted, add the onion and garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes or when the onion change color, add the poblano pepper slices, the corn, and mix it up, cook it for 1 minute more.
add the sour cream and the chicken bouillon mix it up and cook it for 1-2 minutes more, add the cheese, mix it up until the cheese its melted and done.
serve them in gorditas, tacos or whatever your creativity tells you.
hope you enjoy them.
