1 clove garlic, minced
2 large apples and/or pears, chopped (2 cups)
1 8oz can tomato sauce
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground cumin
1/4 cup slivered almonds, toasted
6 large fresh poblano peppers or 3 small green sweet peppers


Walnut Sauce-

Cook ground pork or other meat, onion, and garlic in a large skillet till meat is brown and onion is tender. Drain off fat. Stir in chopped apple and/or pear, tomato sauce, raisins, salt, cinnamon, and cumin. Bring to boiling. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 10 minutes. Stir in almonds. Cut a lengthwise slit in a side of each poblano pepper and remove seeds and membranes. (if using sweet peppers, half them lengthwise; discard seeds and membranes.) Cook poblano peppers or sweet peppers in boiling water in a saucepan about 5 minutes or till crisp-tender. Drain peppers well.
Spoon meat mixture into the peppers. Place stuffed peppers in a 2 quart rectangular baking dish. Bake in a 350 degree F. oven about 20 minutes or till heated through.

Combine walnuts, cream cheese, milk, ground cinnamon and salt in a blender till smooth, spoon on plate and place stuffed peppers on top of the sauce.
