hosted by Cooking with Mama
Mama Susana has prepared a gourmet menu with delicious ingredients imported all the way from Mexico specially for you!!
Put on your sombrero, bring your tequila and be ready to shout ‘Viva Mexico!’ at this very patriotic dinner celebrating Mexico's Independence day.
In Mexico, September is known as the “mes patrio” (patriotic month). There are country-wide celebrations and commemorations of national heroes, culminating in a huge celebration on Mexico's Independence Day.
Cooking with Mama brings a bit of this fiesta closer to you. Celebrate with mariachi music, typical decorations and the very authentic seasonal dish for this occasion…Chiles en Nogada. Yum!
Appetiser – Nopales Salad. Ever thought you would eat a cactus? Mexicans do! Nopales are edible cactus known in English as the “prickly pear” cactus. They are native to Mexico and extremely popular over there!
Main – Chiles en Nogada. Imagine a big green pepper, a not so spicy chilli (in Mexico these are called Chile Poblano), stuff it with minced beef, prunes, cinnamon, apples, pears, apricots, almonds and many other delicious ingredients (yes Mexicans love to mix a ton of ingredients in one dish), bathe the chilli with a walnut and goat cheese sauce, now top that with a few pomegranate grains. The result? Chiles en Nogada! THE traditional dish to have when celebrating Mexican Independence from Spain.
Sides – Arroz y frijoles (Mexican rice and traditional beans)
Dessert – Gelatina de piña y crema. Pineapple and cream jelly.
