Come join us as we celebrate Mexican Independence Day with a menu full of festive dishes in the colors of the Mexican flag. We will make Chiles en Nogada, the iconic dish associated with Dia de la Independencia of meat, dried fruit, and nut stuffed poblano chiles in a creamy nut sauce spangled with pomegranate seeds. Then, we will roll into the party with Tri-color Enchiladas topped with three different sauces—a zesty poblano crema, red chile de guajillo, and white sauce with roasted garlic. Finally, we will finish the meal with a Mexican Flag Panna Cotta of sweet cream, pistachio, and berry flavors suspended together in glass cups. It's going to be a meal to remember. Let's celebrate by cooking together!
