Limones Cocadas

One of the sweet treats in Mexico are their candied fruits. But the one that looks the most inviting is Limones Cocadas or limes stuffed with coconut. Reportedly, limones cocadas was a favorite of Frida Kahlo and a recipe for it is in her cookbook. If you take a look at the recipe, you will see that it isn't "fast food." It takes several days of working with the limes before you can make the coconut mixture and stuff them.

I've had the Limones Cocadas in Mexico City and they are very different but very delicious. I haven't found them here in San Miguel de Allende. However on a shopping trip to Queretaro, I found these in Walmart.
