Rancho la Puerta in Tecate, Mexico was the inspiration behind this dish. The 'Ranch' has been there for 75 years on 3,000-acres and it offers world-class landscaped gardens, an organic farm and internationally known cooking school. Rancho La Puerta is more than a destination spa, it is a life changing experience. It inspired me to look at food differently like these peppers, I incorporated a rainbow of color ... like the Ranch encouraged us to do at every meal!
