An invaluable ingredient in Mexican cuisine, Poblano peppers are green peppers that are mild in heat but bold in flavour. Fresh poblanos have a mild, slightly sweet flavour, although if they are left to ripen until they’re red, they taste much hotter. Dried poblano peppers that are nearly ripe and deep red are known as ancho chilis, a popular ingredient in mole sauces and other Mexican dishes.They can be enjoyed raw in salsas and other dips, as well as added to chilis, taco meat or sauces. In addition, they can be roasted, or stuffed with ground meat/protein, beans, corn, tomatoes, rice and spices, the traditional Mexican way!
Health: Poblanos are particularly rich in vitamin C, a micronutrient that also acts as an antioxidant to help fight underlying damage from free radicals, which otherwise may promote disease. Dried poblano peppers, or ancho chilis, have higher amounts of vitamins A and riboflavin and other nutrients, compared with fresh poblanos. in addition they are rich in antioxidants and could boost immunity.
