    Sharon123's Note:

    This recipe is a favorite at the Nepenthe restaurant in Big Sur, California. I lived there years ago spent much time at Nepenthe. A beautiful place! Tecate is a municipality in the Mexican state of Baja California. And now a little history: Perched on the edge of the continent, high above the Pacific, watched over by the majestic Santa Lucia Mountains sits Nepenthe Restaurant. This Mecca of poets, artists, travelers and vagabonds has served guests for fifty years, opening for business on April 24, 1949. Sitting on the terrace, enjoying an Ambrosia Burger, Tecate Potato Chowder, or an exceptional homemade desserts is a quintessential California experience. The first time visitor to the Central Coast will not want to miss it. Once you have visited, you are destined to return.

      This was really good! I used a mock chicken broth instead of vegetable broth and enjoyed this rolled up in some leftover chapatis. Very tasty! I wasn't sure if I was supposed to use 1-2 whole jalapeno peppers or 1-2 slices, so I used 4 slices of jalapeno peppers and it turned out spicy, but just the way I like it. If you don't like spicy I would use much less! Thanks Sharon! Made for Newest Zaar Tag.
