We mostly think of “Mexican” food as nachos, burritos and enchiladas. But that couldn’t be further from the truth. Interior Mexican food (as we call Mexican food in the U.S.) is much more complex than that, full of rich flavors hailing from different parts of the globe.

Chiles en nogada is a traditional, red-white-and-green dish eaten around Mexican Independence day each year, since that’s when pomegranates are in season. Read the story of its origin here, and check out this fun stop-motion Instagram video we made.

¡Feliz día de la patria!
