Mexico -- One Plate at a Time with Rick Bayless
Thrills and Chiles (#303)
As he watches Acapulco's famous La Quebrada divers leap off a cliff into the sea, Rick contemplates thrill seeking, and confides that he gets his culinary kicks from thrill of the chile. So he sets out in search of chile thrills-a quest that takes him from a simple Michelada made with beer and hot sauce to a chile field, a chile vendor, a spicy Shrimp a la Diabla eaten on the run in an Acapulco market, a lesson in preparing Homemade Hot Sauce, and the ultimate chile thrill: a soulful fish adobado, cooked over coconut husks in a simple palapa restaurant overlooking a tropical lagoon. [25 minutes]
