Chiles Rellenos - My Style
do love trying new flavors. However, when it comes to preparing them, well we do not live on the same time zone. As I do enjoy a little challenge, I decided to take the plunge and work outside the box. Baby steps is where I am at the moment.
I live in the Southwest part of the country. We are graced by sunshine 364 days a year with the occasional freeze, once or twice a year. Fantastic dry summers and warm pool water, we occasionally have to fill it with water to cool down the temperature Beautiful array of vegetation – all sorts of cactuses, Palo Verdes, Mesquite trees, acacias, citrus trees, bougainvillea and vegetables growing challenges with lovely bunnies that wait for the first salad peaking thru to have their own feast. Southwest cooking has a strong presence with all degrees of heat. And yes, we are very fortunate to have wonderful restaurants all around us that serve the best food. Shopping to our grocery stores is a delightful trip with your imagination and inspiration at the highest. For me, shopping for new ingredients has been not only challenging, but exhilarating.
