When we first met that special someone, I would bet that it all began at dinner, or at least over a cup of coffee. With a little forethought and planning, you can create a genuine and sincere moment to share with the one you love. Tita spends each day for 22 years yearning for the man sitting next to her at the dinner table. Originally created to celebrate the colors of the Mexican flag, Chiles en Nogada are only prepared on the most special of occasions. Love this.
Regardless of how our members reacted to the fanciful fairy tale-like plot, it certainly sparked creativity and inspired some delicious Mexican dishes!

As we mentioned earlier in the "Why Should I Care? Small, white, delicious, perfect for breakfast tacos and huevos rancheros. Who doesn't like a good egg? Well, if it's soft-boiled and you're Tita De la Garza, you definitely don't. Mama Elena forced her to eat them as a child, kinda like how our mothers forced us to eat broccoli. So, eggs bring up bad memories for Tita, but on the other hand, they're an important ingredient found in many of her recipes.
