Chiles to the open flame, along with roasting tomatoes & garlic send signal that autumn has begun. No matter the temperature at noon, aroma confirms the season has changed and planets have moved in relation to one another. The sun sets earlier and morning is crisp with frost. The world has changed, and for the better, the proof is in the bushel basket. The Chile Harvest is in.
In my family, we put a fried egg in a heated corn tortilla with a crumble of fresh Mexican cheese, a roasted chile, a squeeze of lime and with a sprinkle of salt autumn has begun... don't forget cold beer calms the burning lips and the balance of flavors is euphoric.
