Culinary Innovations of Mexico Nuns Live On in Storied Cuisine

From an AP story by Maria Teresa Hernandez headlined “Mexico nuns’ culinary innovations live on in storied cuisine”:

Each September, when Mexico celebrates its independence from Spain, people nationwide delight in chiles en nogada, a seasonal dish of mild poblano peppers stuffed with ground pork and fruit, smothered in a sauce of walnut, parsley and pomegranate seeds. The recipe was invented in 1821 by a nun, whose name has been lost to history.
