  • 2 poblano peppers
  • 8 ounces cream cheese softened
  • ½ cup Mexican crema or sour cream
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • ¼ cup crumbled cotija cheese
  • Corn from 3 ears
  • 1 tablespoon cayenne
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ cup chopped parsley + more for serving


  1. Set oven to BROIL.
  2. Slice the poblano peppers in half lengthwise and set them onto a lightly oiled baking sheet, skin sides up. Broil them for about 10 minutes, or until the skins char and puff up.
  3. Remove from the oven and cool slightly. Peel away the skins, then chop the poblano and add them to a large bowl.
  4. Add the remaining ingredients to the bowl, but reserve a bit of the cheddar and cotija for a final topping. Mix well.
  5. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  6. Pour the mixture into a baking dish and bake for 15 minutes.
  7. Top the dish with the remaining cheeses and bake for another 5 minutes. This will make the top nice and smooth and inviting.
  8. Remove and garnish with extra parsley.

Recipe Notes

Serves 8

Heat Factor: Mild. Poblano peppers don't have much heat, though I LOVE their flavor. You can easily spice it up with hotter peppers or spicy chili flakes or powders.
