Chiles Rellenos (Stuffed Poblano Peppers)


Sometimes the little things are the ones that end up being the most important ones, like today, my hubby surprised me with a bunch of these lovely peonies, so I thought to surprise him as well and I made stuffed poblano peppers for lunch and he WAS really surprised.

Poblano peppers are in season at the moment and although are a bit difficult to find here in England when I find some I always buy some even if they are a bit expensive (£7 for 3 poblanos in Borough Market), but these are ingredients that I call “little treats”, I do’t buy them regularly, so once in a while is ok.

This is a mouthwatering recipe and if you are planning to make it have in mind that is a quite laborious recipe, but it is worth every minute that you spend on it because the end result is glorious.

Serves 2 persons

Makes 2 large Poblano chillies

You can also serve the Poblano peppers with some Mexican rice 


  • It is a bit difficult to find poblano peppers in London, but a good alternative are green peppers, the taste won’t be exactly the same, but they will still taste delicious and will look amazing.
  • I have found poblano peppers in Borough Market and Whole Food Market.
