We first found Rajas Tacos down in Santa Barbara on the iconic La Super Rica (Julia Baby’s favourite hang-out) throughout considered one of our winter stays a number of years again, but it surely wasn’t till we had them in San Miguel Allende at a taco stand this spring that it dawned on me, that I must share these with you!

The humorous factor was, we had been consuming in any respect the superb eating places in San Miguel however saved coming again to this one taco stand to get these tacos, all agreeing it was our favourite factor we needed to eat the entire journey.

What are Rajas Tacos?

Rajas, in Spanish means “strips” – and usually Rajas Tacos are made with strips of veggies that embrace poblano peppers and onions. I’ve had them with strips of zucchini and zucchini blossoms as effectively. Mushrooms can be utilized as an alternative of corn within the cooler months. The tacos are both served with cheese, or the filling is made creamy with the addition of Mexican Crema- or Mexican bitter cream.

We use the crema sparingly right here, simply to present it a bit of richness. Be happy to sub vegan bitter cream or cashew cream.

Notes

Charring the corn and peppers offers good taste right here, however it’s not necessary. As an alternative of utilizing the grill, be happy to saute sliced poblanos till tender. You may also blister the peppers over a fuel range high or broil them within the oven, or roast them ( and peel).  Be happy to saute the corn (or char first over a fuel burner).

Be happy so as to add extra spices- I saved it easy right here to permit the sweetness of the recent summer time corn to come back by way of. For extra warmth add a pinch of cayenne or floor chipotle.

Mexican Crema is much less bitter and a bit runnier than bitter cream- so if utilizing bitter cream as an alternative, you could want so as to add a tiny splash of water, and little much less lime- add it to style. I used the entire lime with the crema.
