Stuffed Green Chiles

So you have two choices here:

Eat these stuffed peppers with a knife and fork, on a plate.

Or grab them from the baking dish and eat them with your hands burrito-style. All while standing hunched over the dish.

What sort of a person do you want to be? I’m not judging either way, but I will  just tell you that I went with the second option.

    well, you don’t make stuffed chilies the way the Old Mexicans in New Mexico stuff Hatch chilies.

    no veg except onyon, no beans except on the side. seasoned mince similar to meatloaf. bake. eat with your hands like a burro.
