Directions

  1. Blend the crema, cream cheese, and chicken bouillon in a blender until smooth; set aside.
  2. Place the peppers on a large griddle over medium-high heat. Roast until the skin blisters and turns black. Remove peppers from griddle and place in a plastic bag, allowing them to sweat for 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate to cool. Peel and discard the outer skin of the peppers; halve length-wise and remove the seeds and veins. Slice into thick strips. Set aside.
  3. Heat the vegetable oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat; cook the onion in the hot oil until tender, about 5 minutes. Stir the corn into the onions, reduce the heat to medium, and cook another 5 minutes. Add the poblano strips to the saucepan. Pour the cream mixture over the vegetables and bring to a simmer; cook at a simmer until hot, about 5 minutes more.

This dish was great! I followed the recipe exactly the way it is and I was so happy with the results. The corn was great in there too. It was my first time making rajas and my husband said they were delish! I felt so proud of myself. Serve with a side of beans and warm torillas for a full dinner. Provecho!

Great. I did what I always do with my Mexican recipes, and added 1 smoked poblano in adobo, and some cilantro. Love it. Next time, I will add some pepperjack cheese and reduce the cream cheese.
