Kraft Kitchens Tips

How to Roast, Peel and Seed Poblano Chiles
Place chiles on rack of broiler pan. Broil until skins are charred or covered with black blisters, turning occasionally. Place hot chiles in resealable plastic bag; seal bag. Let stand 10 min. Remove chiles from bag. Place chiles under cold running water and remove peels, being careful not to break the skins. To remove the seeds, make vertical cut in each chile. Remove small cluster of seeds attached to the base.
Food Facts
Native from Iran to the Hilamalyas, pomegranates were introduced to California by the Spanish in 1769. Pomegranates can be stored at temperatures between 32°F and 41°F for up to 7 months. The pomegranate seeds can be eaten as fruit or pressed to make juice.
Beef Cuts for Stews
Almost all cuts from the chuck or round sections of the animal are suitable for stews.
