Juan Carlos Dueweke-Perez joined us on The Nine to tell us more about the event along with Araceli Jimenez from Centro Botanero, one of the participating restaurants. You can watch as he shows us how to make shrimp-stuffed poblano peppers with cheese and chipotle sauce. You can get his recipe below. 

3 tablespoons of Mexican cream (crema)
3 tablespoons of cream cheese
A Splash of white wine
2 tablespoons of butter
A pinch of dried shrimp
1 - 2 Chipotle peppers (for taste; heat preference)
½ tablespoon of Mexican spices
1 - 2 Poblano peppers 
½ pound of cooked Shrimp (deveined, diced and roughly chopped)
Pinch of salt 
Pinch of pepper
1 tablespoon of butter 



Toast Chipotle peppers on stove until brown. Blend chipotle peppers with Mexican cream, cream cheese, white wine, dried shrimp and spices. Add all ingredients to a sauce pan over medium heat and stir until ingredients are mixed and hot. 


Sautee shrimp in butter, with salt, pepper, and Mexican spices. Set aside once hot.

Toast Poblanos peppers on stove top until brown and then peel, cut in halves (lengthwise) and remove seeds. Place on plate and fill peppers with shrimp and then top with the Chipotle sauce.
