I love cooking with fresh chili peppers. I love the process of cleaning out the seeds, the smell of roasting them on a gas range until the outside is black, the extra kick they give to food...the whole thing. I guess it is a part of my southern California "heritage."
Making green chili last night with jalapeños brought out the best of my chili love. My resolution for the next few days is to make as many dishes as I can with fresh peppers. Maybe I'll make roasted squash and poblano enchiladas again. Some fresh ceviche sounds good. Cheddar jalapeño bread? Or stuff poblanos with beans, cheese and other goodies and roast them in the oven.
What's your favorite fresh chili recipe?
