  • 8 small Poblano chiles , or 4 large Poblano chiles
  • 1 pound mild shredded white cheddar cheese
  • 4 cups chicken broth or water
  • ½ small white onion
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 4 teaspoons salt
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 cups long grain rice
  • 1/2 cup frozen corn


  • Place the Poblano chiles on any non-stick IMUSA comal on high heat and roast until the chile skin is completely and evenly blistered. Turn the chiles on a regular basis to create the even blistering. Do not char the chiles. Place chiles in plastic or paper bag for 10-15 minutes. Peel away the black skin. Make a cut lengthwise on your chile and take out the seeds and veins. Stuff with cheese.
  • Using a blender, pureé the chicken broth, onion, and garlic. Strain and set aside. On medium heat, add the oil to your IMUSA Caldero. Add the rice. Stir regularly for 3 minutes until the rice grains are white on the inside and transparent on the outside. Add the chicken broth mixture. Add salt. Bring to a boil. Nestle the stuffed chiles into the cooking rice with the seam side up. Sprinkle in the corn and cover. Reduce heat to low, cover, and continue cooking for 20 to 25 minutes or until the liquid evaporates. Do not uncover the rice for at least 15 minutes or it will not cook properly.


Use vegetable broth to make this recipe totally vegetarian and use vegan cheese for a plant-based version!
