Pipicha - indigenous herb from Oaxaca

Felicia's test kitchen tonight: "enchiladas" made with quelites and mushrooms...topped with tomatillo-pipicha salsa. 

Pipicha is native to central Mexico. It's like eating a mouthful of cilantro and mint with a squeeze of lime. It's "green" flavor works well with lighter dishes making it one of my favorites to use in the summer.  You can find it fresh in your Mexican grocery store...try substituting it for any recipe that calls for cilantro.
