John's favorite Mexican dish + street corn—enchiladas suiza and elote—inspired this creamy poblano pasta recipe from Rach.
Bring a large pot of water to boil for pasta.
Preheat broiler and char the poblanos evenly all over. Place the poblanos in a bowl and cover to cool, peel and seed. Halve peppers and thinly slice 2, then coarsely chop 3 and place in food processor. Puree the 3 chopped peppers.
In a large saute pan, heat EVOO, 3 turns of the pan, add onions and season with salt and pepper. Add cumin, oregano or epazote and soften onions a few minutes. Add garlic and the juice of a lime, stir a minute, and add the poblano puree, crema, and sliced peppers, reduce heat to simmer, then add shrimp, corn, or chicken if using.
Salt water and undercook pasta by 1 minute, reserve about ½ cup of the water just before draining.
Toss drained pasta and cooking water with sauce and top with pepitas, cheese and cilantro or parsley.
