With Cinco de Mayo fast approaching I can’t help but think of Mexican cuisine. One of my favorite Mexican meals is a Chili Relleno, but today I wanted to go with somethig fresher. And so my Chipotle Chicken Stuffed Poblanos with Rajas Sauce were born.
One of my all-time favorite Mexican foods is Rajas. They’re mild Poblano peppers, roasted, cut in strips, and in the case of Rajas con Crema, they’re simmered for a few minutes with a little cream. They’re fabulous and rich and if you can imagine the mild, smoky poblanos simmered in cream, you’ll start to wrap your mind around Rajas. The dish is traditional in Central and Southern Mexico, although I have a few fun twists for this version.
