 Rajas de Poblano con Elote y Crema

 

I used to order tacos de rajas de poblano every chance I had when dining out or if we hit up a late night taco stand.  Little did I know how easy they were to make.  Now I make them at home all the time as my kids have grown to love them also. Some days I add mushrooms or chayote to my rajas, but today I went with fresh corn and a handful of cilantro.  Over a piping hot sope fresh from the comal, pure heaven.

 

 

Rajas de poblano are roasted poblano cut into strips swimming in crema, onions and a bit of cheese.  Rajas can be served with rice, in a taco or over eggs. Heck add them everywhere… they are really that great!
