During the independence month of September, Chiles en Nogada is practically the national dish of Mexico. Not only do the green chiles, red pomegranate seeds, and white sauce represent the colors of the Mexican flag, but the flavors also work in harmony. Pasilla peppers are stuffed with a succulent mix of ground pork, plantains, and chopped apples before being fire-roasted. Finish by spooning the walnut -cream sauce over the peppers and sprinkle with pomegranate seeds for those little pops of juicy crunchiness. Viva Mexico!

This wasn't great, and my order didn't come with pomegranate seeds.
4 Stars
This is one of my favorite meals but hard to find. So I was glad to see it on the Munchery menu. Turned out delicious, ate every bite. My only quibble was they forgot to include the pomegranate seeds.

This was delicious!!! Perfectly balanced in taste and texture. I'm so glad the peppers were not hot, for me that ruins any meal. Thank you, I will order this again.

LOVED this unusual dish! The peppers pack quite a bit of heat, but the walnut cream (which you get a TON of) calms it a bit. The pork filling was juicy and tender. The pom seeds added a fun crunch as a topping. Tip: Mix the rice with the filling.
