Get these Rolled Tacos in Poblano Sauce on the table and in your mouth with quickness. 30 minutes to the cheesiest inside, crunchiest outside soaking up all that poblano sauce, taco goodness.
I don’t know about you, but the quicker I can get tacos in my mouth the better. I live for Taco Tuesday. Its got all my favorite flavors and textures. Crunchy, cheesy combined with the freshest garnishes. I really love the depth you can get from simply roasting poblano peppers, onions and jalapeno. It’s the easiest thing to do. Really!
Grab that sheet pan, throw the poblanos, onion and jalapeno on and broil until charred. So easy, right? The hardest part about this recipe is peeling the kin off the poblanos after they cool. Seriously. After that you just blend it all up and you have an amazing poblano sauce.
