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 ┬ájust tell you that I went with the second option.
