This salsa puts a delicious spin on the regular salsa that we’re all used to! Its creamy texture and mild spice are an awesome combination!
Here’s how to make it!
You will need:
2 Poblano Peppers
2 cloves of garlic (or more)
1 medium onion
2 Cups of Chicken Stock
1 Cup of Sour Cream
2 “drizzles” of Maple Syrup?..
? (a little syrup goes a long way..keep tasting before you add more) This is an unusual ingredient, but its flavor hangs out in the background, and rounds out the spice of the salsa! It really helps make this salsa so delicious, without ever knowing what it is!
Besides..adding Maple Syrup to salsa was Tyler Florence’s idea..and he’s so
adorable smart! 🙂
First, you will need to roast your Poblanos! I find that the easiest way to roast them is right on the gas burner of my stove.
However..you can put them on a baking sheet and roast them in the oven at 400 degrees as well!
Just make sure to turn them regularly, until the skin is charred!
|I can almost smell them!|
I think that’s what tastes so great! But if you prefer to peel them, it will still be delicious!
In a medium stock pot add the chicken stock, garlic and onion, s&p. remove all the seeds and stems from the pepper and add them to the pot!
Simmer for about 5 minutes.
Add that mixture to a food processor, and pulse until it’s blended! Now add in the sour cream and a couple of drizzles of the maple syrup..pulse again to blend! Yay..It’s ready!
All that’s left to do now is find some chips and dig in!
It’s great warm..OR chilled!!
*HINT* This salsa also works as an amazing “sauce” by using it on enchiladas, tacos or even nachos!
Another great recipe Amy! This looks so good and I am especially intrigued with the maple syrup! I'll put this in the pile for our next get together!
Thanks so much!! Let me know how you like it Maggie..it's a favorite at my house! 🙂
This looks Intriguing. I like the combo of flavors. The maple syrup seems a bit weird but I know from experience that adding these odd, surprise flavors that hover in the background can make a truly awesome sauce!I may try this with veggie broth for vegetarian friends. Not sure if that will change things too much. Good recipe!
Thanks Denise!! I thought the same thing, and to be honest..if it were anyone other than Tyler Florence's idea, I may have missed out on this one..lol!
Give it a try, just use a tiny bit of the syrup, it's all you'll need! And I'm sure veggie stock would be just fine! Hope you like it! 🙂
I love that you made this creamy…sounds great. And you're right…I think it would be perfect on enchiladas. Yum!
Thanks Karen..I think I'll try it on enchiladas next time! Let me know if you try it, and what you think! 🙂
