First off, Happy New Year!
Second, sorry for the lack of posts towards the end of the year, but life got busy and I kinda ran out of time to go try some new places on the list and then write them up. I have 2 on the back burner right now, so I shall be catching up on one right now. Then moving forward, I hope to get a lot knocked out with a final goal of finishing off the list by the end of this year. (Should be possible right? Only 77 more items to go.)
Chile Relleno Taco
This chile relleno is a work of simplicity. The kitchen takes a mildly spicy poblano pepper, stuffs it with creamy cheese and fries it in a thin batter. Then it’s wrapped in a flour tortilla that provides a bit of a tug and seals in the warmth. It’s all super fresh, and that’s what makes the difference.
This little “mildly spicy” poblano pepper was much hotter than I thought it would be, and I can handle spicy foods, so I think I just happened to get a much spicier one than mild. No complains though, I do love spicy food and it was yummy! So after I got this, I thought, “Oh! Jalapeno popper taco.” That’s pretty much what it turned out to be. Very simple but delicious for those who like eating peppers.
So I read this little challenge online (Reddit) where the idea is to make a dish with the featured item or theme for the week. Dubbed 52 Weeks of Cooking, this week starts with eggs. I love eggs! So I will try to post my recipe and some photos for each dish. Hopefully this will force me to also keep up with my posts!
