  • 6 Poblano chiles
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil or vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • sea salt
  • 4 ears fresh corn shucked
  • 1 bunch green onions roughly chopped
  • 1 Grated zest of ½ lime + the juice of 1 lime
  • ¾ cup Cheddar-style vegan cheese shreds or shredded Cheddar cheese divided
  • fresh cilantro or parsley and pepitas for serving optional


  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
  • Put the poblanos on a baking sheet and toss with 1 tablespoon oil, ½ teaspoon cumin and ½ teaspoon salt. Roast until they begin to brown and soften, about 20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, put the corn on another baking sheet, brush with the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and sprinkle with ½ teaspoon salt and the remaining ½ teaspoon cumin.
    Roast until slightly golden, 15 minutes; turn, add the green onions and roast 15 more minutes. Let cool.
  • Cut a 2-inch slit lengthwise into each pepper, remove the seeds and open the peppers slightly. (Peel the skin, if desired.)
  • Remove the roasted corn kernels from the cob; add to a bowl along with the green onions, then scrape in the milk from the cobs using the back of a knife. Stir in ¼ cup of the cheese shreds or cheddar and the lime zest and juice. Season with salt to taste. (I usually add about 1 teaspoon.)
  • Spoon the corn mixture into the peppers. Sprinkle the filling with the remaining cheese shreds. Return the peppers to the oven and bake until the cheese is melted, about 8 minutes.
  • Enjoy!



Enjoy with a glass of sangria. Cheers!
