About poblano peppers

Poblano peppers are chili peppers that originate from Puebla, Mexico. Poblanos are dark green, with thick, glossy skin. The peppers are heart-shaped and large, approximately 4 inches long. Poblanos are mild peppers, with a Scoville rating between 1,000 and 2,000 SHU. For comparison, the bell pepper has a Scoville rating of 0 SHU, and the jalapeno is 8,000 SHU.

If poblano peppers are allowed to ripen fully, they turn red and are much hotter. Red poblano chilies are typically dried and sold as ancho chilies. Poblano peppers are available throughout the year in supermarkets. Many of the poblano peppers sold in the United States come from Mexico.

One poblano pepper contains 17 calories and provides 95% of your daily vitamin C requirement. Poblanos also provide vitamin A, iron, vitamin B6, folic acid, and fiber.

FAQs About Poblano Peppers

Many recipes using poblanos call for roasting the peppers first. Roasting brings out the smoky, fruity flavors of the poblano and softens the thick pepper walls. Discover the following five ways to roast poblano peppers:

Don't wash poblanos before storing them since excess moisture can speed up spoilage. Poblanos stored in your refrigerator crisper will stay fresh and firm for up to 3 weeks. Roasted peppers should be stored in an airtight container or plastic bag in your fridge and used within 3 days.

You can also freeze roasted or raw poblanos in your freezer for up to 3 months. Thawed poblanos are best for cooked dishes. Dried poblanos should be stored in an airtight container in a cool, dark place for up to a year.

Supermarkets often mislabel poblano peppers as pasilla peppers. Pasilla peppers are dried chilaca peppers. When dried, pasilla peppers look like dried poblanos (called ancho chilies). The main difference between pasilla peppers and ancho peppers is the shape. Pasilla peppers are slenderer than the ancho. If you happen to get a pasilla pepper mislabeled as a poblano, don't fret. The flavor and heat of pasillas are similar to that of anchos.
