Try Chiles en Nogada in Mexico
Everyone should try Chiles en Nogada in Mexico at least once in their lifetime. This authentic dish ingredients include poblano chiles that are stuffed with picadillo which is a tasty ground beef mixture, then a creamy walnut sauce (nogada) will be poured on top of it. Fresh pomegranate seeds and chopped parsley will be placed on top of it, then served. This dish is best served at room temperature. Sometimes, this dish can also have diced apples, pears, and peaches along with ground pork. Traditionally, the filling is usually made with beef, pork, and biznaga (candied cactus) which will add a bit of sweetness to the dish. However, biznaga is an ingredient that can be hard to find, so you can substitute other dried or candied fruit for a similar result.
