Mexican stuffed peppers with pomegranate bring Christmas colors to the table
Add some spicy flavor to your holiday meal, and make this elegant but easy shortcut version of chiles en nogada. Chiles en nogada is a Mexican stuffed pepper dish with festive red and green colors that make it perfect for Christmas dinner.
