Some people are convinced that chiles have all kinds of powers - that their heat can cure what ails you and even make you lose weight. Whatever the real answer is, they sure taste good and can enhance a dish's flavor. Sonora Café manager Oscar Cruz has creative ways to stuff chiles into food and drinks, such as a smokey pasilla chile drink and a serrano chile margarita.
