Walnut sauce is served raw and if it’s heated it might turn sour.
According to historic chronicles, walnut trees were brought to America and cultivated in the convent of Calpan. This is the reason why this municipality is the best place to try the chiles en nogada.
It’s estimated that in a single season of chiles en nogada they prepare about three million 100 thousand dishes.
The authorities of Calpan seek to obtain the designation of origin for chiles en nogada, as a way of being recognized as the site of origin of the chiles in Puebla and because they prepare them with regional ingredients.
One of the purposes of Tijuana’s Chiles en Nogada Festival is to exchange the dish for wheelchairs for people in need.
The tradional chiles en nogada festival in Puebla has also moved to the north country, where they celebrate it every September 1st at the Tijuana Cultural Center.
The chiles en nogada season begins on July 15th and ends on September 30th.
The chile en nogada has been portrayed in literature, and it’s the main character of chapter XII of the famous novel “Como agua para chocolate”.
