Poblano Pepper

The reality is that the Poblano pepper dip is prepared with many ingredients and
the flavors that predominate are soft and creamy . As a final touch this dip also has a slight smoky flavor that makes it the best.

    1. Take from the plastic bag the 4 Poblano peppers and rinse them while removing the outer skin of the chilies (the burned part).
    2. Discard the seeds and the veins of the Poblano peppers that were rinsed.
    3. Cut the Poblano peppers into strips, put them in a blender and reserve. Also reserve 5 Poblano pepper strips to garnish at the end.

    Cook the Potato

    1. Put in a saucepan:
    • 1 Potato.
    • The enough Water to cover the potato.
    • 1/2 tablespoon of Salt.

    1. Bring the saucepan water to a boil over high heat.
    2. Leave the potato cooking in the boiling water for about 20 minutes, until it softens.

    To know if the potato is ready, spear a fork in the potato. When you feel that the fork goes in and out smoothly the potato is ready.

    2. Transfer from the frying pan to the blender the onion that was fried, also add:
