Chiles en Nogada

When I was in Mexico City last year I tried Chiles en Nogada and it immediately became my favorite food. I finally got a recipe from my friend in Cueravaca and made it at home. It was as wonderful as I remembered.

Our Theme Dinner Group (TDG) came up with a theme for our next get-together where we prepare a dish we saw in a movie. 

One of my favorite books is "Like Water for Chocolate" and it had been made into a movie. As I scanned it for recipes, lo and behold, the December recipe is Chiles in Walnut Sauce -- Chiles en Nogada! I know what I'm bringing!
