Chiles en Nogada

Chiles en nogada is a traditional Mexican dish served only around this time of year, during the peak of the walnut and pomegranate seasons. It consists of a green poblano pepper stuffed with ground meat (usually a mixture of pork and beef) and fruits, topped with a creamy walnut sauce and pomegranate seeds. It contains all of the colors of the Mexican flag (red, white, and green), as do many traditional Mexican dishes. Mexican independence is celebrated on September 16th, so the seasonality of this traditional dish coincides quite well with the national festivities. As the Mexican men's soccer team won the gold medal today against Brazil, I thought it fitting to celebrate my national pride by indulging in this dish!

About Me
Hi Everyone! My name is Alina and I am a college student from Philadelphia, PA. I started baking in high school and for the past two years have been cooking quick and easy meals in my dorm as well. I love following tons of cooking websites, blogs, and photo-journals online for inspiration, in addition to my mom's old cookbooks and her tried and true recipes.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite thing to make are roasted veggies. I like how easy they are to make, and how they can be added to almost anything or even eaten by themselves!
My favorite family cooking traditions
When I was younger I would always help my mom make fresh tortillas before dinner. I remember sitting on the counter next to the tortilla press, and rolling little spheres of dough between my palms. I felt so strong and grown up once I could actually hold down the press with enough force to make a proper tortilla.
My cooking triumphs
A few months ago I prepared a molten chocolate cake under the tutelage of a world-renowned chef. I was terrified of messing up, so I asked him a million questions and double-checked everything. However it turned out delicious, and he was so happy with the results that he gave me his secret recipe as a present afterwards!
My cooking tragedies
It took me a very long time to figure out how to scramble and fry eggs. Before that all of my attempts yielded either very under- or over-cooked eggs that were pretty gross.
