Long live chiles en nogada!

6a00d83451c64169e201348663b382970c
This is Mexico's Independence Day. Streets are quiet as people rush to be with their families or crowd into city and town squares for the traditional "Grito de la Independencia." In the Mexico City area, restaurants often serve the dish you see above: chiles en nogada. It is patriotic, after all, with the colors of the national flag. But it is also extraordinarily flavorful, or as my fellow blogger over at Mexico Cooks! notes, enough to make you stand up and yell, "Viva Mexico!"

that dish looks like the mess Calderon made of the country during his sexenio....his last "grito"...I don't know how he can do it without being highly embarassed
