Feb. 2013 - DISH or INGREDIENT of the Month

The January Dish of the Month seemed to work reasonably well...or at least better than I had anticipated :-D

So let's try for round 2, February

Same as last month...to nominate either a DISH or an INGREDIENT for everyone to try around town during the month of February, all you simply have to do is reply to this e-mail with your nominations in CAPITAL LETTERS.

Thanks, and let's see what you all think we should explore for February

    1. re: Fake Name

      Maybe you could be more specific...SUPER SERGIO'S CARNE ASADA BURRITO.

      1. re: foodiechick

        Not at all, I'd enjoy hearing about different CARNE ASADA BURRITOS

            1. re: Beach Chick

              I've been on a chile relleno kick lately. I know it's americanized and I will get blasted but I really like Garcia's rellenos. Where are your favs? And please no relleno burrito, I really can't figure out the appeal of them.

              1. re: littlestevie

                Come with me to Veracruz and I'll buy you a chile relleno taco. Weird looking thing, but totally delicious

                1. re: littlestevie

                  Fidels in Solana Beach does one of the best Chile rellenos..they use egg whites to fluff up and I get a scoop of sour cream.
                  With a side of beans or rice is dinner for me.

                  1. re: Beach Chick

                    Egg whites is the way to go, that is the method Rick Bayless uses. Thanks for the info BC.

                    1. re: Beach Chick

                      So, I am being flakey and nominating two: CARNE ASADA BURRITO and CHILE RELLENOS.

                    1. re: ipsedixit

                      Sure you're not BC in disguise??

                          1. re: ipsedixit

                            OMG...I just choked on my coffee...

                            1. re: cstr

                              I wish I was like Ipsy..high powered attorney..smart chicks rule!!!

                          2. CURRY

                            (top curry dishes in town - across cuisines)

                                    1. re: cstr

                                      Oooo...patty melt, that's a good one. That's all I need. To start running around town eating patty melts.

                                      1. re: Dagney

                                        Well, if you are actually *running* then it shouldn't be a problem, right?

                                        1. re: ipsedixit

                                          ha! true. a few Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes will take care of the issue. I do love a good patty melt, but I am sticking with my vote for Chile Relleno.

                                          1. re: Dagney

                                            Royce Gracie was a big fan of pattymelts from what I understand ...

                                      2. I second SCALLOPS and add SHRIMP.

                                        1. Nominations will be open through this Friday the 25th. On Saturday I'll post the voting tread with the 2 items most frequently nominated. Definitely some interesting suggetions so far.

                                            1. Since Feb has V-day, I'll go ahead and nominate CHOCOLATE - hopefully we can see some nice mole's too

                                                That's a great idea! I hereby rescind my scallops and shrimp and second CHOCOLATE - both sweet and savory!

                                              2. I love the CHOCOLATE idea!

                                                1. CHILE RELLENOS STUFFED WITH DARK CHOCOLATE!!!

                                                    Might have an easier time finding a veggie pattymelt ....

                                                  2. KALE SALAD.

                                                    I hear the one at Fake's house is deevine.
