Pasta with Creamy Roasted Poblano Sauce/Salsa Cremosa de Chiles Poblano con pasta

Spaguetti con salsa de chile Poblano-1Here is a great excuse to use Poblano Peppers that are still in season and prepare a delicious sauce that helps reduce the spiciness of the peppers. This is my own version where fresh corn and Mexican fresh cheese is added. Serve with grilled chicken and a salad for a full meal. This easy recipe will not disappoint you. I am lucky enough to find poblano peppers at my local Farmers Market with the spiciness that I remember growing up with. Nowadays what you find at the supermarket is lacking in flavor. The addition of the cream will help reduce the heat of the peppers.Spaguetti con salsa de chile Poblano-2
Ingredientes for 4 servings:
8 oz. (1/2 package) of spaghetti or the pasta of your choice
3 Large Poblano Peppers previously roasted and deveined (see HERE for roasting instructions)
1 Tablespoon of vegetable oil
1/2 cup of white onions, finely chopped
1 Large garlic clove or 2 small ones
1/2 cup of milk
3/4 cup Mexican Cream or heavy cream
2 Teaspoon of chicken bouillon in granules form
3/4 cup fresh corn (optional)
Fresh crumbled Mexican cheese for garnishing (optional)
- In Mexico this dish is traditional made using spaghetti, but you can use other types/shapes of pasta.
- If you like, reserve some strips of the peppers for garnish.
- I very rare used Chicken bouillon but in this recipe it works great. If not using just add salt to taste at the end.
- Yes, you can use other types of creams like sour cream or cream cheese if Mexican Cream is not available, the same applies to the cheese.

  2. I just roasted some Poblanos yesterday for some shrimp chile rellenos. This looks like a really good pasta sauce... one I'd love, but I'd have to throw some meat in there for my gardener. Ha!

    1. Shrimp Stuffed poblanos, sounds like a great dish. I usually serve this pasta with grileld chicken.


  3. Pinned and stumbled this! That sauce would be great on enchiladas too, can't wait to try this.

    1. Hello Chris,

      The sauce alone goes really good over chicken breast or other meats, but enchilada will be superb!
