The chiles were the size of your hand. The filling was a delightful mixture of sweet and savory: chopped meat with just a hint of dried apples & pears, plantains, nuts and (believe it or not) cactus candy. Their traditional salsa de nuez (white pecan sauce) was drizzled over the top with generous sprinkles of pomegranate served with the freshest handmade corn tortillas.
They prepared a special holiday meal for us last night and I couldn’t recommend it more highly. I particularly enjoyed the special tamalitos of green chiles & Mexican cheese, along with the Moles blanco and poblano.
