30 Poblano Pepper Recipes that are Easy to Make

Poblano peppers are a relatively mild chile pepper that come mainly from Mexico. Although mild, they can at times, have a great deal of heat to them. Once the poblano pepper ripens completely, there is a great deal of heat.

The Poblano can be used in various ways. They can be fried, dried and made into sauces. Not everyone can handle the heat of the pepper once it has ripened, however, there are many great ways to use the poblano peppers in everyday cooking.
