I actually pulled off making the chiles rellenos yesterday! I was so proud of myself. I'd had this recipe since before my daughter was born. I actually got this recipe from another nurse when I was working at Comanche Memorial Hospital in Lawton, Ok. I really wish I could remember her name. Bless her heart- she hand wrote the recipe for me and it's sort of lengthy. I really wish I could give her credit but my memory fails me.
I tried making this recipe once before. And frankly, I'm surprised I held on to it because my first attempt at this was a big flop. But I tried again and it turned out to be amazing! I am going to share this with you today. The thought did occur to me that I should do a video blog from time to time. Yesterday would have been hilarious. I was not feeling very confident when I was working on the recipe and I ended up making an ENORMOUS mess. I had batter everywhere. I really would love to watch another person make these and see their technique because mine surely wasn't the best way to go about it.
Since I'm not a baker I rarely ever beat egg whites. Ok, I did it ONE time before. And I don't think I beat them on a high enough speed. So I was literally jumping up and down, I was so happy, when I saw the egg whites forming into peaks inside my mixer. It takes so little to make me happy!
I'm not sure what recipe will come next. How can I top my new accomplishment? I need to just enjoy this victory! For a couple of hours anyway..
And thank you Joe, Kari, and Lori for your sweet comments!! They made my day!
