Feb. 2013 - DISH or INGREDIENT of the Month

DiningDiva Jan 19, 2013 09:59 AM

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

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

              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.

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

                  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.

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

                                          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.
