Poblanos are a mild to medium hot pepper, all of them ranging in an assortment of heat, and if you’re not a huge fan of the fire, feel free to remove the seeds and stems like a bell pepper or jalapēno! Poblanos have a crisp crunch like a bell pepper, with a touch of sweetness. They add depth of flavor in cooking, and I think they make the perfect addition to chicken fajitas. If you don’t eat meat, you can sub tofu or cauliflower for the chicken, and this veggie mix would be perfect over grilled fish for fish tacos! I got a few of these in my Perfectly Imperfect Produce box recently, so I had to make a batch of these! You’re going to love them, too!
