Rajas #SundaySupper

Rajas- Poblano Peppers sauteed with Onions and Garlic

This is officially my first post for the Sunday Supper group and it is rather serendipitous the way things work out.  You’ll see what I mean in a second…   The theme this week is “The Big Game” and everyone knows what game I’m referring to:  Denver Broncos vs Carolina Panthers.   My other half is a HUGE Denver Broncos fan, so this game is a Very Big Deal.

Last year, we spent a few days in Denver and I needed supplies for a quinoa salad I was making for about 100 people so we stopped into a local restaurant supply store.  In front of the store were two lovely Mexican women making gorditas.  I struck up a conversation with them  and found out they were mother and daughter.  We had quite a lovely chat about Mexico and I must tell you, they made the best gordita filled with rajas that I have had since living in Guadalajara. It was the perfect amount of heat.  The peppers were charred to perfection, the gordita was filled with gooey queso and I had fresh salsa verde on the side.

So, you see…  It all just came together.  Denver making it to the Super Bowl,  stumbling upon this tiny food stand in Denver (that happened to be some of the best food I had on that trip) and being married to a Bronco fan.  I couldn’t pass it up.

    How sad that I didn’t even know what rajas were! But now I can see how they would be all kinds of awesome in a gordita, especially one with cheese. Super delicious, Cheryl!

      Stacy, you are a Texan! I’m sure you’ve had them before & maybe just didn’t put a name to it! I love poblano peppers, if you like a little heat… You’ll like these! xx
