HERNÁN's Mole Pipián is a rich and smooth blend of earthy flavors. Roasted pepitas (pumpkin seeds), sesame seeds, and peanuts mixed with spicy chilies and tangy epazote - the Aztecs' cooking herb of choice.
Found in abundance in mercados, pepitas are a staple of Mexican cuisine. Ancient Mexicans are known to have hulled, roasted and ground them to make delicious pastes for sauces. Combine paste with broth or water in saucepan for easy 4-8 minute prep. Enjoy over poultry, roasted pork, fish, shrimp or grilled vegetables with a bed of rice. Also delicious over vegan dishes of tofu and seitan steak. Or as a salsa for enchiladas, tacos, and quesadillas.
