Poblano potato salad

  • 900g baby red or new potatoes, cut into 1 to 2 cm pieces
  • 3 ears fresh corn, husks and silks removed
  • 2 poblano chillies, charred, peeled, stemmed, seeded and chopped (see cook's note)
  • 225g chopped spring onions (white and pale green parts only)
  • 115g sour cream
  • 60g mayonnaise
  • 60g chopped fresh coriander leaves
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1) Put the potatoes in a large pot and add salted water to cover. Bring to a boil over medium heat and cook until tender when pierced with a knife, about 20 to 30 minutes. Drain the potatoes and let cool slightly.

2) Meanwhile, preheat a grill or grill pan to medium-high heat. Add the corn to the grill and cook, turning occasionally, until evenly browned on all sides, about ten minutes.

3) Put the potatoes in a large serving bowl. Using a sharp knife, carefully cut the kernels off the cobs and add them to the bowl. Add the poblano chillies, spring onions, sour cream, mayonnaise and coriander and fold together. Season the potato salad, to taste, with salt and pepper and serve.

Notes: To char the chillies (or any fresh chilli): put the chillies over a gas flame or underneath the broiler and cook until they are blackened on all sides. Enclose them in a plastic bag and let stand for ten minutes to steam, which will make them easier to peel. Peel, stem, and seed the chillies. Once peeled, the chillies may be chopped, sliced or stuffed.
