Has anyone ever come across poblano chiles in the UK? I haven't seen any yet, but I am dying to make my favorite poblano chile rice, like I used to make back home in California. The recipe calls for fresh poblanos that are boiled.
I am not holding out much hope for finding poblanos, but does anyone know a chile that has a similar flavor profile to a poblano? I mainly remember that the fresh ones have a 'green' taste to them, while being mild. I don't really remember if they have any sweet qualities to them though (how sad! and I've only been here for 6 months). Would a bell pepper approximate? I have access to lots of middle eastern, Indian and Turkish grocers. Any help in leading me on the path back to that most wonderful, glorious rice would be much appreciated!
