*The size have to be large, if you cannot get large chiles you can use
littles, but need to buy more, is difficult to make the exactly amount of
chiles and stuffing.

**acitron: a citron dried and made into sweetmeat; candied lemon. This is
what my dictionary says, if you cannot get it do not worried, make the
recipe with the other ingredients.

***The walnuts need to be peeled before, you can let them in some water on
the refrigerator.

Prepare the stuffing: In a sauce pan put vegetable oil, in the blender make
a pure with onion and garlic, add to the vegetable oil when it is hot, let
the onion fry until be brown (not black). Add the meats, let cook until the
meats loose all the water and looks a little brown, add the red tomatoe
puree, add salt and pepper and let it boil, add the fruits chopped and let
cook until will be dry. Let cool.

Sauce: Mix all in the blender until be soft and have a sauce consistency,
try and season with salt and cinamon, this sauce will be cold over the
stuffing chiles.


Fill all the chiles with the meat, there are two ways for to serve:

1.- Mix 4 eggs whites until be hard, add the yolks and mix, cover the
chiles with this mix and put them to fry in some vegetable oil. let cool
and cover with the white sauce, adorn with the pomegranate and some little
parsley leaves.

2.-Without using the eggs and oil, I prefer in this way, just after fill
them put over the white sauce and adorn with the pomegranate just a few
seeds for to add red color to the dish, because this dish have the mexican
flag colors: green, white and red, and also adorn with some little parsley
leaves. Patricia Wriedt
