Green Spaghetti


I love love love green spaghetti!  It’s usually made in large quantities for parties.  I really only see this dish at Christmas time.  It is really easy to make and here is how it goes:

4-6 poblano peppers
1 large bottle of Mexican crema
4 oz cream cheese
2 chicken knorr cubes
1 lb spaghetti, cooked
2 tbsps butter
2 tbsps olive oil
3/4 cup panela cheese cubed (optional)

Here’s what you do:
Roast the poblano peppers on all sides.  I usually put the peppers under a broiler.  Once the peppers are cool enough to touch, peel all the black skin off and remove the stem and seeds. place the peppers in a blender along with crema, cream cheese, and knorr cubes and blend well.  If the mixture is too thick add milk a little at a time until it gets to a nice creamy consistency.  You don’t want it to thin.  In a large deep skillet melt the butter in the olive oil and add spaghetti and coat well with butter and olive oil.  Pour the green sauce over the spaghetti and panela cheese if using.  Mix coating the spaghetti well with the sauce.

Let me know if you make it and if you did anything differently.


About Tami

I am a 33 wife, mother and first grade teacher. This blog began a few years ago when I was a stay at home mom in Mexico. I was terrified to venture out of the house, seeing that there were gun fights between cartels and military officials almost twice a week. I felt uneven even inside the house. I discovered blogging soothed a little bit of my nervousness. It started off with me sharing my life here in Mexico but when a close family member went missing, I backed away from sharing too much information. I still wanted to blog, but what? FOOD! I was at home cooking 3 times a day, why not share what I love to do and all the new food I was discovering. Not only that, I have been cooking since I was in the second grade. So I am still here sharing my past, present and future through everyone's estomagos.

    • Yes, but better! haha I always buy the El Mexicano brand. It’s in a 15oz bottle with a green top. It will say table cream. I believe the other one has a red or white top and says sour cream. Sour cream would work as well, however I think there is a difference in taste.

  1. I love this green spaghetti it’s so yummy…. I make it at least 2 to 4 times every month
