Stuffed Peppers (Chiles Rellenos) are a tradition in Mexico. They originated in Puebla, but they’re in every Mexican household and restaurant.
During September, there is a version of Stuffed Peppers called Chiles en Nogada, the ultimate dish to celebrate Mexican Independence. The Poblano Pepper is filled with minced meat and fruits; it is then covered with a white creamy walnut sauce called Nogada and topped with pomegranate seeds, giving it the three colors of the Mexican flag: green, white, and red.
There are many different styles to prepare chiles rellenos and various options to fill them. Cheese and minced meat are the most common fillings, but cooks add their own technique and ingredients.
In this recipe, we use Tropical Queso Fresco Mexicano, Mexican Chorizo, drizzled with Crema Mexicana. Enjoy the authentic Mexican flavors with these Cheesy Stuffed Peppers.
