  3. Meanwhile, set an oven rack as close as possible to the broiler element. Slice poblanos chiles in half, remove the stem and seeds, and arrange with the skin-side up onto a baking sheet lined with foil. Some of the chiles may need to be flattened so that they are the same distance from the broiler.
  4. Broil for 7 to 10 minutes until the skin becomes charred, rotating and adjusting the tray so that they char evenly. - Empty the chiles into a large bowl, cover tightly with plastic wrap, and allow them to steam for 10 minutes. Rearrange the oven racks so that there is one in the middle and lower positions and set oven to 200?F.
