POBLANO POTATO SALAD  

Potato salad with a southwestern kick—the perfect partner for grilled flank
steak, chicken or red snapper seasoned with cumin.
3 medium poblano chilies (about 9 ounces total)

2 pounds small red-skinned potatoes, unpeeled, each cut into 6 wedges
6 medium tomatillos (about 7 ounces), husked, cut into1/2-inch pieces
1 1/4 cups chopped green onions
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

1 cup sour cream
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 3/4 teaspoons ground cumin

Fresh cilantro sprigs

Char chilies over gas flame or in broiler until blackened on all sides. Enclose
in paper bag; let stand 10 minutes. Peel and seed chilies. Cut chilies into
1/2-inch pieces. Transfer to large bowl.

Place potatoes on steamer rack set over boiling water in pot. Cover and steam
until potatoes are just tender, about 10 minutes. Cool. Transfer to bowl with
chilies. Mix in tomatillos, green onions and chopped cilantro.

Whisk sour cream, lime juice and cumin in small bowl to blend. Add to potato
mixture and toss to coat. Season generously with salt and pepper. (Can be
prepared 6 hours ahead. Cover and refrigerate. Let stand at room temperature 30
minutes before serving.) 

Mound potato salad on platter. Garnish with cilantro sprigs and serve.

Variation: Shock and Awe Potato salad.
           Substitute habanero peppers for the poblanos.
