Stuffed Poblanos

Tuesday, April 2, 2013


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • Pinch of coarse salt
  • 3/4 cup lager beer
  • 8 poblano chiles
  • 4 ounces Monterey Jack cheese, cut into eight 3-inch-long sticks
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic (from 2 garlic cloves)
  • 2 cups corn kernels (from 2 to 3 ears)
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • Safflower oil, for frying
  • Sour cream, for serving
  • Lime wedges, for serving

  1. Whisk flour, baking powder, salt, and beer in a bowl to make the batter. Refrigerate for 1 hour (it will puff while chilling).
  2. Place chiles directly over the flame of gas-stove burners on high heat. Roast, turning with tongs, until skins are charred. When chiles are cool enough to handle, slip the skins off. Neat, huh? 
  3. Leaving stem intact, cut a slit into the side of each chile. Remove seedpod, then pop in a stick of cheese.
  4. Heat butter in a skillet on medium. Add onion and garlic; saute until onions are translucent, about 5 minutes. Add corn; saute until tender, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Spoon 1/4 cup of corn mixture into each chile, and close up with a toothpick.
  5. Heat 1 inch oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Dip chiles in batter, and fry in batches (do not crowd skillet) until golden, about a 1 minute per side. Drain off excess oil on paper towels. Serve with sour cream and lime wedges.
    Sounds tasty right?
