       3    Cloves garlic, finely minced
 
 MMMMM---------------------------SAUCE--------------------------------
       2    Dried ancho chiles
     1/3 c  Tomato sauce
     1/4 c  Rice wine or sherry
       3 T  Oyster sauce
       2 T  Dark sesame oil
       1 T  Brown sugar
       1 T  White wine vinegar
       2 t  SW style or asian chile
            Sauce
  
   Advance preparation: Preheat the oven to 325. In a small bowl, beat
   the eggs with a fork and refrigerate. Discard the seeds and stem from
   the bell pepper, and then cut the pepper into 1/4 inch cubes. Discard
   the stem ends from the zucchini, and then cut the zucchini on a sharp
   diagonal into 1/4 inch thick slices. Overlap the zucchini slices and
   cut into 1/4 inch matchstick pieces, place the pieces together and
   cut into 1/4 inch cubes. Discard the corn husks and cut the kernels
   off the cob. Cut the green onions on a sharp diagonal into 1/4 inch
   long pieces. In a small bowl, combine all the vegetables and
   refrigerate. Toast the pecans in the preheated oven for 15 minutes,
   and then set aside. Place the cold cooked rick in a plastic bag and
   squeeze the bag with fingers to separate the rice into individual
   grains. Divide the cooking oil, putting 1 T in one small container
   and 2 T in another. Set aside the cilantro. In a small container; set
   aside the garlic. Place the ancho chiles in a small bowl and cover
   the chiles with boiling water. When the chiles soften, mince the
   chiles finely. In a small bowl, combine the minced chiles with the
   remaining sauce ingredients.
   
   Final cooking steps: Chop the fresh cilantro and set aside. Place a
   wok over the highest heat. When the wok becomes very hot, add 1 T of
   the oil to the center. Roll the oil around the wok and when the oil
   gives off just a wisp of smoke, add the eggs. Stir and toss the eggs
   until they are softly scrambled, then slide them onto a plate.
   Immediately return the wok to the highest heat. Add the remaining
   cooking oil and the garlic. Stir-fry the garlic, and soon as it turns
   white, about 5 seconds, add the vegetables. Stir and toss the
   vegetables until the peppers brighten, about 1 minute. Stir the
   sauce. Add the sauce, scrambled eggs, and pecans to the wok. Stir and
   toss all the ingredients until they are mixed evenly and the rice is
   thoroughly reheated, about 3 minutes. Stir in the cilantro. Taste and
   adjust the seasonings.
