Karla Gonzalez is a human resources and legal manager at Mitsubishi Electric de México S.A. de C.V.

She coordinates activities related to human resources including recruitment, personnel selection, training, pay sheets, internal events. In the legal area, she handles contracts related to company operations, compliance, immigration issues, policies and procedures, and much more.

Today, Karla (second from left) ate chiles en nogada at the company cafeteria with her colleagues from other departments of Mitsubishi Electric.

Chiles en nogada, one of her favourite dishes, is prepared with poblano chilis stuffed with picadillo (a mixture of minced meat, aromatics, fruits and spices) topped with a walnut-based cream sauce, parsley and pomegranate seeds, symbolizing the three colours of the Mexican flag. She likes the combination of the ingredients for its savoury taste and also because the dish has a tradition related to her country's history.

For breakfast, she brings fruit into the office from home. And for lunch, she either eats at the company's cafeteria or somewhere near the office, whichever she feels like on the day. She finishes off her lunch each day with a cup of coffee.
