Poblano chillies are stuffed with a flavourful pork mince stuffing, then covered in a creamy walnut sauce and garnished with pomegranate seeds and parsley. The long list of ingredients is deceiving - this make ahead dish is quite easy once you have the provisions!
This is a great make ahead dish - you can make the filling ahead of time, roast the chillies ahead of time, then whip up the sauce and assemble at the last minute.
Use ready-ground cinnamon and cloves instead of grinding the whole spices yourself.
Poblano chillies are a mild green chilli, which are available but can be hard to find. If you can't find poblano chillies, use green peppers for a similar result.

This is a great dish! I'm Mexican and made it to celebrate Mexico's Independence Day on September 16th. I use orange peel instead of cactus and add one once of sherry wine to the sauce. - 17 Sep 2015
This recipe has good flavors and textures. The filling was a little bland so I added cumin and cayenne. It was involved but I will definitely make it again. - 21 Oct 2018 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
