As soon as you start cooking rajas de poblano con crema dip, you will quickly start to smell why it is one of my favorite go-to recipes, especially when entertaining a large crowd.
I can’t exactly remember the first time I had rajas de poblano con crema, or poblanos in a cream sauce, and I was a little taken back by the appearance and I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect. But I promise you, if you love a bit of spice with lots of creamy goodness, this is the recipe for you.
I have always had rajas in a tortilla and served as a taco, but I wanted to try something a little different. Instead of having it as a meal I decided to try it as a dip. It turned out better than I expected.
You can try rajas de poblano con crema on a tortilla, over rice or by itself. Whatever you decide, you’re going to love every bite.
