The perfect way to reconnect

Chiles en Nogada were invented in the region of Puebla back in the 1800’s. The nuns of the convent of Santa Monica were commissioned to create an exquisite dish to welcome General Agustín de Iturbide when he marched into Mexico on September of 1821; and he came to the city of Puebla after the signing the Treaty of Córdoba (Mexico’s independence).

When he entered the city he was with the Army of the Three Guarantees (represented by the three colors of the Mexican flag) – so Chiles en Nogada have the color green from the chili, white from the walnut sauce and red from the pomegranate. This is why this dish is a source of pride for the inhabitants of the state of Puebla.
