Why you’ll love these roasted poblano peppers
- Poblano peppers have a subtle spiciness, significantly milder than a jalapeño. They’re a great middle ground between spicy and mild.
- When poblanos are roasted, they develop much a deeper, almost earthy flavor profile.
- Roasting them also softens them up and allows you to remove the skin, making them easier to blend into smooth sauces and soups.

How to roast poblano peppers
Prep the peppers. While your oven is preheating to 400˚F, wash and dry the poblano peppers. Arrange peppers on a parchment lined baking sheet.
Roast the peppers. When your oven is hot, place the baking sheet in the oven and roast the poblanos until the skins have blistered and browned and the peppers are tender.
This usually takes around 20 – 25 minutes, but it will depend on the size of your poblano peppers.
Everything you need to know roasting poblano peppers
Poblano peppers are rated on the scoville scale as 1000-1500, which means it is milder than a jalapeño (ranked at 2500-8000). As with all peppers, the potency will vary pepper to pepper but these peppers will be more consistent with their kick than other peppers.
The skins of the poblano pepper tend to have an unappealing texture and we prefer to remove the skins after they have been roasted. Removing the skins from a poblano pepper is simple and can be easily done after they have been roasted and allowed to cool a bit. Please make sure to use gloves or wash your hands immediately after handling to avoid capsaicin burn.
