    Default Poblano peppers....

    Are they ever used unpeeled? It is such a pain to blister, peel and
    devein and get all the seeds out? If the peels are always too tough I
    don't want to ruin a recipe. I was thinking of putting them in Chili
    on this cold rainy/snowy day here in De. DH reccommended I top, seed
    & devein them before blistering. Any comments or suggestions or
    admonitions?? Thanks.

    My usual process is to put the whole chiles under the broiler till the
    skin blackens then put em in a paper bag for a while, they de-skin
    pretty easily then.

    Poblano's not quite as well as others.

    I'd suggest a few Anaheim's as well.

    It's named "chile" for a reason, use 'em. ;-)

    For poblanos?

    Kind of like suggesting gloves to handle dill pickles.

    This is the method I use some of the time; but, other times I disconnect the
    smoke detector and blacken the skin over the burners on my gas stove. The
    burner method allows more complete blackening of the stem end which, often
    indented as much as an inch, is more difficult to blacken and peel. Using
    the burner method, I generally have less difficulty removing all the "peel".


    Given that I have cathedral ceilings and need a ladder to disconnect the
    smoke detector, I sometimes put up with a bit of poblano skin - pretty much
    depends on how many I am going to work with whether I think its worth the
    extra effort.

    I may broil the peppers but to get them good and blackened, take them
    outside and finish them off with a blow torch. It might excite the
    neighbors but it works without disconnecting smoke detectors. I use this
    for eggplants and tomatoes too where a smoky taste is desired since my
    broiler is electric.

    Char them *before* seeding them; much easier.
    Char/roast them in the oven, under the grill/broiler or over a gas flame
    until the skins are black and blistered. In warmer weather do that
    outside on the BBQ grill. Let them steam in a covered bowl for a few
    minutes and then peel, seed etc. Do a batch and freeze the extra
    airtight. People around here in the SW do that in 25- or 50 lb batches
    (the supermarkets will do the roasting) and then use those chiles until
    the next harvest.

    What you do it cut out the stems, split in half, and remove the
    seeds (not a very big seed bundle in poblanos). Then throw them
    into whatever you're stewing for 30-40 minutes until the skins
    loosen. Then take them out, remove the skins, chop them, and add
    them back to the dish and cook until done.

    If I roast chilis before hand, I roast them until they're mostly
    black and use the skins and all - without peeling. The charring has
    already tenderized the skins.

    Completely unnecessary for poblanos.

    I kind of got that from the other comments. If they aren't hot, what is
    their flavor like?

    You don't know and you're offering advice?

    They taste like an empty/unfilled chile relleno.
    Guess why.

    It is best to peel them, but I have also cut them unpeeled into small
    strips and sauteed them, like you would a bell pepper, and there
    was nothing remarkably wrong with that.

    To peel them, remove stems/placenta/seeds, rinse, place them still
    wet into a toaster oven until they blister, then submerge them in
    a bowl of water for five minutes. THEN peel them. It's not
    too much of a problem.

    I wouldn't use gloves for poblanos, but different people have
    different sensitivities.
    Also, late in the growing season, I've picked poblanos that were
    fairly hot. My NuMex Big Jims are always quite mild and Anaheim-like
    in early summer, but by September they are hot enough that gloves are
    a good idea. I use nitrile ones. Capsaicin dissolves latex.
