chiles over open flame on gas stovetop or under broiler, turning often, until skins are charred. Place in paper or plastic bag and close to “sweat” chile for 4 to 5 minutes. Remove chiles from bag and run under cold water. Skin will peel off easily. Make lengthwise slit to remove seeds and veins. Rinse chiles and pat dry with paper towels. (We suggest that plastic gloves be worn when working with the chiles as skin can become irritated. Do not touch face or eyes when working with the chiles.)

oil in a heavy large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; cook until just soft, but not browned. Add ground beef. Cook until browned, stirring occasionally; drain. Add the remaining ingredients except the sherry. Turn the heat to medium low. Simmer, stirring frequently, until most of the liquid has evaporated, about 15 minutes. Stir in the sherry and continue cooking for 5 minutes.

walnuts in medium bowl. Cover with boiling water; let stand for 5 minutes. Drain. When walnuts are cool enough to handle, remove the skins and discard them. (This will take a long time!) Walnuts may need to be covered with boiling water again to keep them easy to peel.

PLACE peeled nuts, evaporated milk, media crema, goat cheese, cinnamon, sherry and sugar in blender container; cover. Blend until smooth. (It should be the consistency of a thick milkshake.) Makes about 4 cups.

each chile with about 1/2 cup filling. Place stuffed chiles on serving platter. Cover with Walnut Sauce and place remaining sauce in serving bowl. Garnish with pomegranate seeds and parsley. Serve at room temperature.

* NOTE: Acitrón is the crystallized or candied pad or paddle (leaf) of the prickly pear cactus. This can be found at Latin markets.
