Roasted Poblano Slaw

I made a big batch of this crazy good roasted poblano slaw the other day when I made pulled pork sandwiches. The crunch and heat from the slaw went absolutely perfectly with the sweetness and tenderness of the pork.

Roasted Poblano Slaw

Pepper Flavor Without The Heat

Poblanos are one of my favorite peppers. This roasted poblano slaw is proof of their great flavor. Though they have a little kick to them, they aren’t overpowering. I can usually use them in any dish I am taking to a pot-luck or family get-together. And I don’t have to worry about someone screaming that their mouth is on fire. I consider poblanos to be just more flavorful versions of a green bell pepper.

This slaw will keep for several days and still keep it’s nice crunch without being too watery.

I recently discovered Blue Plate mayonnaise, which I think is the best around. If you can’t find it locally you can pick it up online for a fair price.

Also try my roasted Hatch chile slaw.

Roasted Poblano Cream Sauce

This roasted poblano cream sauce is the perfect somewhat-spicy sauce for topping grilled chicken sandwiches. It’s also fantastic on burgers, pork, or used as a dip. It actually would work as a soup too. Want a little extra kick? Roast a jalapeno with the poblano and add it to the sauce when you blend it.

Grilled Chicken Fajita Sandwich

Perfect On Chicken

My first use for this roasted poblano cream sauce was over grilled chicken fajita sandwiches. It adds a wonderful southwestern flavor and creaminess to any dish that it’s used on. Feel free to use any pepper you wish if poblanos aren’t your thing. I like them since they aren’t too spicy but also have more flavor than bell peppers.
