Tales from Chile-land
My host described the standard ways the locals mediate the heat of the chile: beans, cheese, lemonade, and beer. I will also add spinach and plantanos to the list; the "huevos yucatecas" I had for breakfast at a cafe on Saturday had fried bananas on the side and that helped mediate the considerable heat considerably.
I am in Rocky Mountain High Colorado now and missing breakfast burritos already.
N.B. I had a kick-ass birthday dinner on the 14th and will blog it (with photo) in a retroactive entry when I get back. Indeed, the desire to load the photo to my computer is why I left the camera attached to my PC when I left for the airport. So no pix of the huevos yucatecas, or the chile delights available at the farmer's market.
