Guadalupe wine valley has lots of hip and chic places to wine and dine but no other made an impact on me like Nahui Chilli. They bring Puebla style Chiles Rellenos (Stuffed Poblano peppers) to the Ensenada wine country. This quaint little place with a outdoor patio surrounded by nature and organic decor took me to a place that sure wasn’t Baja. Nahui is owned by a couple of lawyers with a passion for cooking. *Note they only open on weekends because this restaurant is their passion project. I know this much because Mrs. Meza Marquez made sure we were loving our food and seemed to take a honest interest on all her customers’ whereabouts. This family ran business creates the type of atmosphere I love in which you feel the good energy all around and are served succulent food for the right price!
I’ve had chiles rellenos before, I mean what Mexican hasn’t! But none with the fusion of flavors ranging from fruits, nuts, cheeses, vegetables, and meats paired perfectly. May I also note, these are the biggest chiles I’ve ever seen! In this case bigger is better lol! 😉 If you’d like to try something other than the usual tacos while in Ensenada go to Nahui Chili it’s one to be remembered.
The plate to the right is a more traditional Chile, stuffed with 3 cheeses and topped a mild red salsa and corn. I washed it all down with made to order cucumber water. I get hungry just writing about it!
