The Capirotada is Mexico’s classic Lenten dessert, although the sweet spices along with fruits and nuts certainly will evoke Christmas. Queso fresco is a very traditional ingredient, and the topping of honey-laced sour cream really places our version of this seasonal treat in a class all of its own.
