Vegan Roasted Poblano Peppers

These Vegan Roasted Poblano Peppers are ridiculously easy to make and beyond delicious. And just a little bit spicy. These are a few of my favorite things

They make a great side or appetizer when you’re serving Mexican food… you could even cut them into bite-size niblets and arrange on fancy toothpicks for a cocktail party! Serve with margaritas, and call it a night.

Best part? Only 3 ingredients. Poblano peppers, Daiya cheese, and Cholula hot sauce.  I actually enjoyed mine with a bit of sour cream, but that’s totally optional.

Roasted Poblano Peppers (makes 4 pieces/side servings)

You really only need a few pinches of Daiya on each piece, and as for the hot sauce it depends on how hot you like it. Just remember the peppers have a bit of heat to begin with! If you find yours too hot, a bit of vegan sour cream cools it down nicely.


  • 2 medium/large poblano peppers
  • Daiya shreds in your flavor of choice
  • Hot sauce (I recommend Cholula or Sriracha)
  • Sour cream, if desired


  1. Cut the peppers lengthwise in half, remove the ribs and seeds and rinse well. (And whatever you do, do not touch your eyes!)
  2. Broil just until blackened, then rinse again- this time rubbing the burnt skin off.
  3. Sprinkle with Daiya and hot sauce to taste, then broil for 2-3 minutes on a cookie sheet until the cheese is melted. Serve immediately.

    Sounds like the ideal snack to take the chill off of a winter day! Now I want to experiment with using all sorts of different peppers… Smart idea to switch it up a bit from the standard jalapeno popper.
