I had the privilege of traveling to Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs Spa and Resort with some wonderful people last month.
Here are a few pictures from the amazing weekend. It was such a gift to be a part of the experience!

Oh, and if you’re interested in trying a new recipe, I recommend the Poblano Chili Fries….I still dream about them, they were that good!
GREEN CHILE FRIES with Hot ‘n Sweet Vinegar
Cut in half, lengthwise, seed, and cut into ½ inch wide strips lengthwise.
In succession: coat chile strips with Wondra Flour, Egg Wash (whole eggs whipped with a little water), Potato Flakes (Instant Mashed Potato Flakes).
Be sure to really press the chiles into the potato flakes to coat well.
In a deep pot heat canola oil to 350 degrees, and fry in small batches, being careful not to overcrowd, for about 45 seconds or until you see the breading turn a light brown.
Drain on paper towels and serve with dipping sauce.
Hot ‘n Sweet Vinegar:
1 Cup Seasoned Rice Wine Vinegar
1/3 Cup Granulated Sugar
2 Tbls. Sambal Oelek (Oriental Chile Paste)
Place ingredients in a sauce pan, bring to a simmer so that sugar will dissolve. Remove from heat and chill before serving.
Sugar and chile paste may be adjusted to personal taste.
