Ingredients

Almond-Caper Dressing:

Directions

Simmer the almonds in 2 cups water for 2 minutes in a 1-quart saucepan. Drain and cool. Remove the peels by gently rubbing the almonds between your fingers. Alternatively, you can substitute 1/4 cup already blanched and peeled whole almonds. 

Coarsely chop almonds and raisins in a food processor and set aside. Heat the oil in a 12-inch skillet over a medium flame. Saute the garlic and onions until the onions become translucent. Add the ground pork and beef and continue sauteing until the meat mixture is browned. Add the pureed tomato and cloves and saute about 1 minute. Add the remaining ingredients, including the ground almonds and raisins. Continue cooking until all the moisture has been reduced. Set the mincemeat aside to cool. Fill each chile with 2 tablespoons of mincemeat stuffing. Arrange the chiles on a bed of lettuce either on individual plates or a large platter. Spoon dressing over the chiles, making sure that each one is thoroughly covered. Serve immediately.

Place almonds and capers in a food processor and grind to a fine paste. Slowly add oil and process until mixture attains a pesto-like consistency. Pour into a mixing bowl and briskly stir in the wine or vinegar and salt. Spoon dressing over the chiles, making sure that each one is thoroughly covered.
