The chile is then dipped in an egg batter, deep-fried, and finished with a walnut cream sauce, parsley leaves, and pomegranate seeds.

Mole sauces typically have a myriad of ingredients and are made by toasting and grinding spices, seeds, and chiles, then simmered for many hours.
Cocada Envinada is a super dense coconut cake. It is almost like candy.
Rompope is an eggnog-like drink made with eggs, milk, and vanilla. The egg yolks impart a yellow hue to the emulsified beverage.
