That is the traditional way to skin all kinds of peppers(oftendone when
they are to be used in a sauce, etc. You blacken them over a flame and
then put them into a paper bagandshke a little and let wait. the skin
then comes of with your fingers quite easily. I generally don't mind the
skin so seldom do this. Poblanos are the traditinal pepper for chili
rellanos or Mexican stuffed peppers, which i have never made,but have
eaten:-) Poplanos(dried called Anchos) are mld for a chili, bu thave a
little kick so can add a nice light punch to things like those scrambled


Hi Wendy,

Thank you!

Okay, I have burned butter twice and egg plant one. So this
is right up my alley. Any idea how to burn a Poblano with
an electric stove?


Put the oven rack on the top slot, turn the oven to broil and place
the peppers on a sheet of aluminum foil. Watch closely doesn't take

Thank you!

Unfortunately, no access to an oven. :'(
