Hailing from Córdoba, Mexico, Elia Herrera’s recipes have been lovingly passed down through many generations of her family. She takes great pride in bringing fresh and authentic Mexican food to Toronto at the upscale restaurant Los Colibrís. With her grandmother as the inspiration behind her recipes, we've brought to you Herrera's Rajas Poblanas dish. Give it a try and be sure to let us know what you think in the comments below.

  • 3/4 cup evaporated milk 
  • 1/2 cup crumbled manouri or feta cheese
  • 4 to 6 soft corn tortillas 


Peel skin from poblano, remove seeds and stem. Slice; set aside.

Melt butter in skillet over medium heat. Cook onion for 3 minutes or until softened. Stir in chicken, corn, poblano and salt until combined.
