While the potatoes boiled I began to roast the poblanos over the stove. I did this by placing over a stove burner at high heat. The goal is get as much of the skin blistered and roasted so that it can be peeled off.
This is what the chile poblano looks like after roasting on one side. You might need to angle them to make sure to get the flame is touching the uncharred bits.

I wanted to share some pics from a couple of weeks back. I was making agua de Jamaica and a friend suggested a little kick would be good. In a 6 cup jar I had 1 cup of dried hibiscus leaves and 1 chile serrano I split in half. I topped with boiling water to let it steep. The resulting tea had a little kick but could use more. I served this over ice with lime juice, simple syrup and tequila. This can also be served as is mixed with a bit of sugar then poured over ice.
