Reviews forSouthwest Corn Salad
"If you can find them in your produce dept of grocery store, buy Anaheim or Poblano chile's. Take them home & roast them. You can roast on your grill or over a gas burner on a stove. Let the skin blister, a little charring is good. Put in a ziploc, seal, let sit for 30 minutes. Peel skin off, chop chiles and use them in the recipe. This adds a new level of flavor vs. the canned."
