Roast poblano peppers on an open flame til charred about 80%. "steam" or sweat them in a plastic bag for 10 - 20 minutes and then the waxy skins will scrape off under cool water. Cut the tops off, slice down the middle and remove the seeds. Now these can be frozen in ziploc freezer bags or canned with a pressure canner.

How do you thaw out frozen hot peppers without being mushy?

If you want to thaw out frozen STUFFED peppers, like bell peppers, I would move the peppers from the freezer to the refrigerator the day before I intended to cook them. Anything that thick will require a while to defrost, and it shouldn't be left out that long. If you want to thaw out something as big as a poblano, if its been stuffed, I'd also defrost in the fridge. For smaller, unstuffed chilis like ancho poblanos and the like, I think you could just pull them out 30 - 60 minutes beforehand and defrost them at room temperature.

What is the main ingredients of mole poblano?
