A VERY PATRIOTIC FOOD DISH

To accept the rank of First Commander of the Mexican Army, Iturbide had to rip off three stripes from his shirt that were distinctive of Spanish soldiers. The troop among shouts of enthusiasm and joy had offered him such national rank. He was so admired that some soldiers of the Viceroyalty Army, unrestrained, left and went to increase the rows of the Mexican Army. The stronger section of such army headed by Iturbide made a triumphal march by Michoacan, Guanajuato, Querataro and Puebla. Iturbide then made a pact with Juan O’Donoju, the last viceroy; it was called the Treaties of Cordoba. On September 27, 1821, the Mexican army made an entrance into Mexico City; they were received by delirious followers and filled with great joy. Triumphal arcs and flags had been prepared, distinctive with the colors of the new flag, the colors of the three freedoms: green, white and red. The green represented the independence, the white represented the purity of religion and the red represented the Spanish nation, whose military emblem that soldiers had on their caps was red, in a banquet offered to Iturbide, he was presented symbolically with a dish of “chiles en nogada”. This national dish has its origin from Puebla and is an allegory to the colors of the national flag.

NOTES

A very difficult situation had to face Anastasio Bustamante, when he assumed the presidency of Mexico in 1837. Santa Anna had left for him a country filled with great problems, one of them public insecurity since the police squads were not enough to keep an eye on the streets and the few police officers that were around were also corrupt. Around that time, Juan Yanez, was sent to be executed, he was the leader of a group of thieves who robbed a diligence. He was a colonel at the same time.
