Roasting the Poblano Peppers

To start off, you'll need to roast the poblano peppers to bring out their rich smoky flavor. Here's how:

  1. Preheat your broiler on high.
  2. Place the poblano peppers on a baking sheet and position them on the top rack of your oven, directly under the broiler.
  3. Broil the peppers for about 5-7 minutes, turning them occasionally with tongs, until the skin is blistered and charred on all sides.
  4. Remove the peppers from the oven and transfer them to a heatproof bowl. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let the peppers steam for about 10 minutes. This will make it easier to peel off the skin.
  5. Once the peppers have cooled down, use your hands or a knife to peel off the skin. It should come off easily. Remove the stems and seeds as well.
  6. Chop the roasted peppers into small pieces and set aside.

Preparing the Corn Mixture

Now that your poblano peppers are ready, it's time to prepare the corn mixture for the brulee. Follow these steps:

  1. In a blender or food processor, combine the corn kernels, heavy cream, milk, eggs, sugar, and salt. Blend until smooth.
  2. Transfer the mixture into a large saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until it thickens. This should take about 10-15 minutes.
  3. Once the mixture has thickened, remove it from the heat and stir in the chopped roasted poblano peppers. Mix well to incorporate the flavors.
  4. Let the corn mixture cool for a few minutes before pouring it into individual ramekins or a large baking dish.

Baking the Brulee

Now that your corn mixture is ready, it's time to bake the brulee to perfection. Here's what you need to do:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. If using individual ramekins, place them in a larger baking dish. Fill the dish with hot water, about halfway up the sides of the ramekins. This will create a water bath and help ensure even cooking.
  3. Carefully pour the corn mixture into the ramekins or baking dish.
  4. Place the baking dish in the preheated oven and bake for about 35-40 minutes, or until the brulee is set and slightly golden on top.
  5. Remove the brulee from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes.

Caramelizing the Sugar

Now, it's time to add that signature brulee touch - the caramelized sugar crust. Follow these steps:

  1. Sprinkle a thin, even layer of granulated sugar on top of each ramekin or the entire baking dish.
  2. Using a kitchen torch or the broiler setting on your oven, heat the sugar until it melts and caramelizes. Keep a close eye on it to avoid burning.
  3. Once the sugar has caramelized, let the brulee cool for a few minutes to allow the sugar to harden.

Serving and Garnishing

Your poblano cream corn brulee is now ready to be served and enjoyed! Here's how to add a finishing touch:

  1. If using individual ramekins, carefully run a knife around the edges of each brulee to loosen it. Invert the ramekin onto a plate to release the brulee. If using a large baking dish, simply scoop out portions onto individual serving plates.
  2. Garnish each brulee with chopped fresh cilantro, crumbled queso fresco, and a squeeze of lime juice.
  3. Serve the poblano cream corn brulee warm and savor the delicious combination of flavors and textures.
