Thought I'd pass on the way I do my chiles, I don't like to deep fry so, I fooled around with a tempura batter, anaheim,or poblano chiles and pepper jack cheese. This is what I came up with. I just buy a box of tempura batter mix, mix to package directions, then slice my chiles the long way, remove seeds and ribs..I then dry them and dip into the batter and place face up like a boat on an oiled baking sheet..I don't worry if they touch. I then slice up the pepper jack cheese and fill the boat with it. Put into a 400 oven and bake til cheese is melted and batter is golden around the edges., Getting ready to go out for dinner but will post my recipe for the black bean dip when I get back if anyone wants it..

Dinner was a huge hit! Red chile/pork were perfect! The green chile/chicken/cheese needed garlic salt in the mixture and definitely more cheese. I know the cheese didn't melt out but you could barely tell there was any in there. Dh highly approved, telling me to pack him 8 for work tomorrow! Also he practically insisted on a constant supply in the freezer, I'd have to say I agree but we'll see if I can manage. Now I just need to have my dessert and I'll be happy!

I've recently heard from someone, who lived in Mexico for the last two years, that though Mexico is famous for its peppers, most mexican meals don't contain them at all. They are researved for special meals, and used sparingly. The person stated that true mexican meals are far, far different than what we would expect. Americans tend to think tex-mex is true Mexican cuisine.

Does anybody have a genuine sampling of true Mexican recipes, the stuff that the average citizen would make in their home? If so, then I would be ecstatic if the recipes could be posted.

Kadesma... I think daughter having a baby is a pretty good excuse for backing out.

Good luck and Congrats! Keep us up dated.

smiles and hugs, T

thought of dessert yet?

There's some really good looking flan recipes in the Desserts Thread (the part underneath) that would go well with all the great Mex food being prepared tonight.

sorry, couldn't get the link to copy here
