1. When cooking your chicken or shrimp gently season with the adobo seasoning. set aside. Pour your sauce in the same skillet and gently stir to warm up. Add in your chicken or shrimp and enjoy with a side of rice and beans!
1. On a sheet pan, lay out some foil and place your peppers on it. Set your oven on broil and broil the peppers until they are roasted on both sides. (They are ready when they have a charred look)
2. Once the peppers are done in the broiler place them in a large ziplock bag immediately. Close the bag and allow to steam for 10 mins.
3. While the peppers are steaming cook your chicken and set aside. (The recipe above cooks your chicken in 6 minutes)
4. The peppers should be done now. Peel the skin and remove the seeds. Cut in strips. If some strips are really longer just cut the strip in half.
5. Now we are ready for the sauce. In the same skillet you used the chicken, sauté the onions and garlic with a little bit of butter or oil. Once onions are soft add the heavy cream and sour cream. Mix well. Then mix in the cheese until all combined. Add the poblano strips and corn and allow to simmer for 5 to 8 mins. Seasoning with salt and pepper.
4. Once the sauce is warm and bubbly add in your chicken and serve immediately with a side of rice. The rice mixed with the sauce is so delish.
Note: if you want more sauce just add extra heavy cream, sour cream, and cheese. Simple! And if you don’t want chicken chunks I would suggest shredding the chicken.
1 1/2 to 2 teaspoons of chicken bouillon seasoning or salt
1 tablespoon of unsalted butter
1/4 cup of frozen corn (optional)
2 tablespoons of canola or vegetable oil
1. In a medium pot or skillet oil your pan and sauté rice on a medium heat until all the rice is brown and toasted. (Doing this adds flavor to the rice)
2. Add the water, bring the pot to a low, and the butter and seasoning and cover rice with a lid. Set the timer for 15 mins. Checking the rice at least 2 times to give it a mix or fluff. Once the water is fully absorbed remove from the stove, keep lid slightly on, and allow to steam cook for 10 mins.
Note: If you’re going to add corn add it 5 minutes before the timer goes off.
3. Fluff with fork and enjoy. Add additional butter or seasoning if necessary.
Note: if you want to make more rice, you always just double the water to the rice.
Note: Use this recipe as a guide as well. Feel free to use different peppers or try different seasonings. This is a mild sauce but it’s delicious! If you want to increase the spice add more of the Chile de arbol peppers.
