Are poblano peppers hot?
Typically they are not, but that doesn’t mean you won’t find a scorcher or two in there. They’re rated about 1,000 in heat in the Scoville scale which means that they’re less spicy than jalapeno peppers.
Most people don’t eat poblano peppers just for the hope of them being a bit spicy. These peppers really do have quite a delicious flavor.
What do poblano peppers taste like?
A lot of people compare them to green peppers in terms of flavor and also consistency. They’re a “thicker” pepper so they’re great for holding in other ingredients, hence this stuffed recipe.
And as stated before, they’re not super spicy but they will make your taste buds dance a bit once you bite into them.
Can Poblano Peppers Burn Your Hands?
They can so I always recommend that people wear plastic gloves when handling any type of spicy pepper. If there is even a hint of heat to the poblano pepper, the oil from the pepper is going to burn your hands.
If you don’t know if you have that oil on your hands or not, there’s a high probability that you’re going to rub your face or eyes, too…talk about a burn that you’re not going to like!
What is another name for poblano peppers?
They’re called a few different things. You might hear people refer to it as a chili ancho or just an ancho, and they’re both referring to the same pepper.
Make certain that you take out the seeds and the membrane of these peppers. This is where a lot of the heat is and once you remove it, there’s a good chance that you’re making them be a more mild pepper to eat.
If you want to cut down on the fat content of this recipe, you can use ground turkey meat instead of ground beef. Once you add in the other seasonings, you might not even be able to taste the difference!
Don’t forget to have some extra toppings for when these stuffed peppers are done cooking. Sour cream, fresh cilantro, and salsa are all great additions to add even more flavor and taste.
I think you’re really going to like this super simple dinner recipe. It’s fast and easy to whip up and can easily be a fun appetizer or an entire meal. Pair it with some white rice and a scoop of refried beans and you’ll be in flavor town heaven!
