See that? It’s a chili relleno–a poblano pepper usually stuffed with meat and cheese, battered and deep fried to gain a wonderful crunch. After that crunch comes the gentle sting of a mild pepper, followed by the full-bodied glory of Mexican spices.
I’ve been cravin’ one of these for the longest time, and now I can have one!
You heard right, my friends. I have now been released of all binding food restrictions–well, almost all–and am free to eat even Tex-Mex! Praise the Lord and pass the salsa!!!
The only restrictions I have right now, and they’re only for a year, are certain high-fiber veggies and fruits–can’t have ’em raw, but I can have ’em cooked–and nuts. No nuts whatsoever, but I can have peanut butter. I can live with these restrictions. Beats the tar out of a liquid diet, and even a Crohn’s diet!
Which means that I can also have this: a deep fried stuffed avocado (beginning to see a pattern here?). Nothing beats this beauty of crunch and cream, spice and sweet. And cheese, cheese, cheese!
In case you haven’t caught on yet, I’ve missed Mexican food something awful, and I can’t wait to pop something into my mouth that has a touch of cayenne, a dash of cumin, a bit of chili powder. For those who fret about me going spicy too soon, don’t worry–there’s a difference between an upset tummy (which I may or may not get, but I doubt it) and full-blown Crohn’s. I can have spice, but not high fiber foods right now. And I intend to have spice!
Yeeeee-haw! Got a tortilla?
