Chiles en Nogada

Chiles en Nogada is by far one of my most favorite Mexican recipes. A roasted poblano pepper stuffed with picadillo (a mixture of shredded meat, spices and fruit) topped with a creamy walnut sauce, and garnished with cilantro (traditionally parsley) and pomegranates for good measure. This is quite an ordeal, but it’s completely worth it, and if all you’ve had in terms of ‘Mexican Food’ is that king sized wet burrito, then you definitely need to put in the time to try this.
