On his way to Mexico City, the Emperor stopped in Puebla, where he decided to hold a feast with the townspeople to celebrate their independence from Spain. To honor the Emperor, the Augustinian nuns of Santa Monica worked to prepare a special dish with local and seasonal ingredients. Through these ingredients they created the chile en nogada, otherwise known as chile in walnut sauce.
