Chiles en Nogada (Mexican Stuffed Poblano Peppers in Walnut Sauce)
This traditional Mexican dish is from the area of Puebla. Poblano chiles are stuffed with a flavorful ground pork stuffing, then covered in a creamy walnut sauce and garnished with pomegranate seeds and parsley. The long list of ingredients is deceiving - this make ahead dish is quite easy once you have all your ingredients!
Recipe Summary test
This is a great make ahead dish - you can make the filling ahead of time, roast the chiles ahead of time, then whip up the sauce and assemble at the last minute.
You can use ready-ground cinnamon and cloves instead of grinding the whole spices yourself.
Instead of the candied orange peel, you can use Acitrón, a traditional Mexican candy that's made of crystallized biznaga cactus and used in many sweet and savory dishes.
