Guessing Game

I ordered lunch at a Mexican place outside Dalton, GA today. Owned and operated by Mexicans, called La Maguay. Can you guess what the food on the left side of the plate is? On the right are the ubiquitous soupy refried beans. Who can identify the dish on the left?

  1. Is there anything under the kind of soupy sauce on the left?

    1. After rejecting my first three guesses for being too gross to mention in a public forum, I'll take another stab and say... sausage & cream gravy? That 100% cholesterol stuff old-time southerners eat over biscuits?

        It does kinda look like gravy...

        So chorizo gravy over eggs, topped with queso fresco (not sure I spelled that right).


        1. Good guesses all. I was totally boggled to find out it was a chile relleno. Gloppy sauce, some ground beef and a bit of peeled roasted green chile. By no means a whole chile just a couple of bits. But yeah, BobB, pretty gross. Lots of salt not much flavor.Oh well it was northern ga

            you mean a "pre-digested and puked on a plate by a dog" chile relleno?

              LOL! That's pretty much what I was going to guess. Minus the chile relleno!

            2. I only knew the answer because that's how chile rellenos are served at the Mexican restaurant near my office. Bleah.

                This is my standard in CR's. I was aghast at that mess!

                  now THAT is a chile relleno. how does that other mess qualify as stuffed peppers? i don't get it.

                    I didn't either, which I was non-plussed about the glop on my plate. Even finding any green chile was a challenge.,
