Comments: Aioli-inspired Poblano Chicken Sandwich


Beautiful picture.

FYI - I think dried poblanos are also called Ancho chilis.

I have to say that sounds like a delicious chicken salad. I have a lot of anchos around too so I'll definitely be giving this a whiz the next time I have leftover chicken about.

Question: when you use your coffee grinder for spices, how do you clean it afterwards? Or do you have one dedicated to spices and another to coffee? Or just really spicy coffee? I've always wondered when I see people using coffee grinders for spices...

Got over the dilemma myself when I got the hand blender from Braun, because it came with a mini-food processing cup that works really well on spices and can be put in the dishwasher. I've never seen a coffee grinder that can be put in the dishwasher...

I just rinse it out in the sink (not the cord of course). I was just having this conversation with Sweth, telling him that I use it for both coffee and spices. It cleans well, but if not, coffee with notes of ancho sounds real good to me. We actually don't use it that much for coffee, since we are more tea people and when we want coffee, well, there's the Juan Valdez just a few blocks away, where they make a much better coffee than I can at home.

I must say, that looks delicious, and shall be attempted in my household before too long. I'll probably add some cumin as well, and maybe shredded cilantro. mmmmm.

If you use a coffee grinder for spices, it's almost impossible to clean it completely – there's always going to be some spice oil and residue. Best to have a grinder dedicated to spices (put a label on it that says SPICES, so nobody gets confused!). Perfect for grinding those toasted whole cumin seeds for Indian dishes.

I also love chicken and not the meat. Looking very tempting and irresistable. A must try at home and hope it turns out well as it is looking.
