Start with hearty rajas con crema, combining none-too-spicy poblanos with sweet, fresh corn, Mexican sour cream and cheese. Tender chicken enchiladas with mole de Piaxtla may induce swooning, thanks to a sauce that is unexpectedly sweet yet heady.Its seductive texture has a mesmerizing depth of flavor and no matter what it's paired with, it's always a winner.

Every bit of the cow and goat’s milk pastel tres leches is worth the indulgence.
