Mushroom Potato Poblano Tacos #poblanopeppers #tacos

Ok, so I have to admit. Ever since Cinco de Mayo I have been on this Poblano kick, especially Roasted Poblanos. YUM! Poblanos have just the right amount of heat, but not too much that your mouth is on fire or eyes start to water.

As I was looking through the FoodNetwork Magazine from last month for inspiration I found some awesome recipes for Tacos. But the one that caught my eye was this Mushroom, Potato, & Poblano Taco. {ok, clearly by now you realize I have an obsession with Poblanos :)} After reviewing the recipe, I was a little skeptical at first because there were alot of different steps to make this dish happen. I am all about the fast and efficient. But after tasting it, all those steps to get to the end product were well worth it! So, here is it folks… the Mushroom, Potato, and Poblano Taco!

To get started,  roast the 4 poblano peppers directly over the flame of a gas burner, turning until charred all over, about 10 minutes.

Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat and cook until just tender, 5 to 6 minutes; drain. Wipe the skillet dry.
Heat the olive oil in the skillet over medium-high heat. Add the potatoes and cook until golden and crisp, about 4 minutes per side. Remove and drain on paper towels. Then chop up 1 1/2 T. of fresh cilantro and 1 1/2 T. of fresh flat leaf parsley.
While potatoes are still hot, sprinkle with half of the herbs, and salt to taste.

  1. Justin would totally dig on these! He loves everything about this. And I also have an obsession with poblanos…my sis taught me how to fire roast them yrs ago when she came back from living in Mexico. I thought it was so fancy. So now I’m hooked on the taste and the technique! I’m going to for sure make this recipe…love it!

    1. Thanks girl! I am hooked on them as well…. basically any and everything fire roasted. 🙂 I feel fancy when I make them too. I hope you and your man like them. Have a great weekend chica.

    1. they are.. and so far these are the best I’ve been. The poblanos in this rock and a perfect compliment to the creaminess of the mushrooms. YUM!
