FC: Mary Alexanderson's Cookbook
1: Complete amateur cooks in these areas will just have to seek help from a Native New Mexican. It is still a Mystery to me where Mary learned to cook so well. She was an accomplished cook before we married. Almost immediately after we married she began having friends over for dinner and cooked wonderful meals. Mary’s mother died when Mary was an infant, so she didn’t learn from her. She grew up with different relatives and spent her school years with her father and step-mother. Her father was a pretty good self-made cook so she may have learned some basics from him. At a young age she was living on her own and cooking for herself and an invalid brother. Somewhere, somehow during those short, hard formative years she learned all the home-making skills that made an accomplished wife and mother. | Mary was a meticulous, good cook who loved to cook for family and friends. All the recipes in this book were copied from handwritten pages in Mary’s Steno Notebook. Some of her New Mexico Combination Plates are not detailed because she cooked from memory, and assumed everyone knew how to cook beans and Spanish rice, and green and red chile.

8: Mary’s Christmas Chile Rellenos Ingredients: 3 Quart-size freezer bags of roasted New Mexico green chiles (medium to hot) 3-1/2 Lbs. ground beef (85% or not too lean) 6 Large eggs 6 Slightly rounded tbs. flour + 1 more Garlic salt to taste Solid Crisco shortening for frying Additional flour for making and shaping the rellenos Prepare Chile-Beef Mixture: Thaw and peel the frozen green chiles, retain chile flesh and seeds, dice, and season with garlic salt. In a large skillet thoroughly brown ground beef and also generously flavor with garlic salt. Tilt skillet and spoon off all fat after browning. Over low heat add the diced green chile to the sound beef in the skillet and stir very, very well to obtain a completely blended mixture with an almost mushy consistency... ten or more minutes of stirring. Take skillet off of burner while forming the rellenos. Form Rellenos: If right handed, cover palm side of left hand with flour. With right hand place a very generous tablespoon of the
9: chile-beef mixture onto floured left hand. With a little more flour on fingers of right hand work the chile-beef mixture into a tightly packed, egg-shaped solid, adding more flour to hands as necessary. Place the relleno on waxed paper and repeat until all rellenos are formed. Make Batter for Coating Rellenos: Separate the eggs and beat the whites until stiff. Add back the yolks and beat again. Add the six slightly rounded tablespoons of flour and beat again. If the batter appears a little thin, add all or part of the other tablespoon of flour to thicken. Add some garlic salt to batter and beat one final time. Fry Rellenos: Melt enough Crisco shortening in a four or five-inch high pan suitable for deep frying. Melted shortening should be a couple of inches deep, heated to almost smoking, and tested with a drop or two of the batter before beginning the frying. (Batter drops should immediately begin to fry.) Pour some of the batter into a shallow pie-pan-like dish. Using fingers, roll each relleno in the batter to thoroughly coat, and gently drop into the heated shortening. Fry until golden brown, remove with slotted utensil, and drain on paper towels. Continue coating, frying, and draining until all rellenos are done.
10: Serve: The chile rellenos are best served immediately, but may also be frozen in batches for future use. Frozen rellenos may be reheated in a 350-degree oven for about one-half hour or in small batches in a microwave oven. Serve on a heated Nambe platter or in a chafing dish as a hors d'oeuvre or pass during dinner. Recipe makes about fifty rellenos. This somewhat unusual style of chile rellenos ~ no cheese and no stuffing of chiles ~ is a traditional and favorite Christmas treat in New Mexico.
