Chiles en Nogada

Anyone ever make this at home?

I first had it at a local Mexican joint that was serving it as a special, and only for a week.

It was the most divine thing I'd ever eaten. It was spicy, savory, sweet, creamy (but not heavy), and oh so delicious. We went back like 3 times just because I knew it was limited. The same place still has great food, but have not made this dish yet.

The manager said it was a very time consuming recipe made only on special occasions.

I've been thinking about trying to make this, but I'm hoping to hear from someone out there who's done this at home.
