It is one of the tastier periods to be on vacation in Cancun and Riviera Maya, due to a great dish arriving at the table: Chiles en nogada. This is a seasonal dish from the Mexican cuisine and one of our favorites at Mayan Explore. The name comes from the Spanish word for walnut tree, nogal. It consists of poblano chiles filled with picadillo (a mixture normally featuring shredded meat, aromatics, panochera apple, criollo peach and spices) topped with a walnut-based cream sauce, called nogada, and pomegranate seeds.
