Mexican Pumpkin Seed Sauce

October 27, 2011

Usually around this time of year, we are drawn to hearty red sauces but I have a sauce that will change all that. Pipián is a green sauce made with toasted pumpkin seeds or pepitas, cumin, garlic, chiles, and cilantro.  It is a piquant, nutty, and rich in flavor.  You can use this sauce as a rub for meat, pour over enchiladas, or served over poached chicken.  This video from the Culinary Institute of America shows you how to make this incredible sauce.  It is a must-make sauce for the fall season.
