“You can buy the whole seat but you’ll only need the eeeeedge!” Dubbing last Saturday’s Bare Bones barbecue competition a “brawl” couldn’t be further from the truth.

Here’s a blow-by-blow description of how to make classic New Mexico-style chiles rellenos. Creating truly great chiles rellenos requires a bit of effort, but once you’ve had that first cheesy, glorious bite, you’ll be glad you took the time.
