Rajas con Crema (Poblano Strips with Cream)


This is a classic recipe to have in your Mexican recipes repertoire. In my family my sister Cynthia is the one that makes the best “rajas con crema” ever, she always puts the  “je ne sais quoi” (“no sé qué” in Spanish) touch.

Rajas con crema are very popular in Mexico, everybody loves this dish and if you ever host a “taquiza” at home, this is definitely a must “guisado” (stew) to have as a taco filling.

So come on! Get up from that sofa and start making this delicious Mexican dish, it is very easy and quick to make and I assure you, you will love it.


  • Sometimes is very difficult to find poblano peppers in the UK, so that is why I suggest to use green peppers, but have in mind that the flavour won’t be the same.
  • But when Poblano peppers are in season you can find them in the UK, they are a bit expensive but it is worth for an original Mexican experience.
