Equipment

  • Cast-iron skillet
  • Chef knife & cutting board
  • Cheese grater

Ingredients
 

  • 4 poblano peppers ($0.48)
  • ½ white onion, thinly sliced ($0.12)
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced ($0.12)
  • ¾ cup corn kernels ($0.85)
  • ¾ cup vegan Mexican crema ($0.92)
  • ½ cup vegetable broth ($0.05)
  • ¾ cup vegan mozzarella shreds ($0.93)
  • Salt & pepper to taste ($0.02)

Instructions
 

  • Heat a cast-iron griddle or large skillet over high. Pan-roast the poblano peppers until all sides are blackened and blistered, about 10 minutes.
  • Once they are done, transfer the poblanos to a Ziplock bag or bowl with plastic wrap overtop to help loosen the skins. Let them steam for 5-10 minutes, then peel the skins off.
  • Remove the seeds and veins of the poblanos, then slice them into thin strips and set them aside (wash your hands well after handling or wear gloves).
  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium, then add in onion slices and sauté for 3-4 minutes until translucent. Add in minced garlic and cook for another minute. Lastly, add in corn and poblano strips and cook for 2-3 minutes more.
  • Lower the heat slightly, mix in vegan crema and vegetable broth, and cook until warmed, about 2 minutes. Add in shredded vegan cheese and combine until melted. Taste and season with salt and pepper to your liking.
  • Remove from heat and serve immediately in corn tortillas, as a side dish, or garnish. Happy eating!
