Chile verde has such a special taste for my palate. This green pepper is also known as Anaheim or California pepper. It has such an exquisite flavour and it’s not spicy. Chile verde adds a ton of flavour to food, specially when it’s roasted! They’re green, a lighter shade than jalapeños, and they can be twice as long. In my Sonoran land we refer to it as chile verde. In order to prepare this pasta, I roasted some chile verdes, and I prepared a cream. You can use any type of pasta you prefer or have at hand, or you can even use this cream to add to some chicken or meat.
Here’s what you’ll need:
– 5-6 chile verde peppers
– 1/2 medium white or yellow onion
– 2 garlic cloves
– cooking oil
– 8oz softened cream cheese (1 bar)
– 1/3c Greek yogurt
– 2tsp bouillon
– 6c cooked pasta (about 12oz of uncooked pasta)
– Cilantro to garnish
Start by roasting the peppers either on your stove top, or by broiling them in your oven. Place them in a sealed container or bag, and set them aside to cool down. Then, remove the skin and seeds of the ppeppers.
Finely chop the onion and garlic. Heat up some cooking oil in a pot, and fry the onion and garlic. When they change color, and they look a bit transparent, add the peppers. Fry for several minutes, remove from heat, and let them cool down.
Place the peppers with garlic and onion in a blender. Add a bar of softened cream cheese, Greek yogurt, and the bouillon. I used chicken bouillon. Heat up some more cooking oil in the pot you used before. Add the cream and cook for a few minutes in medium heat. When it’s about to boil, add the cooked pasta, mix well, and it’s ready!
