My favorite dish of the cooking class (not *just* because I helped make it...) was a "dip" called Pipían. It is basically a salsa with ground, toasted pumpkin seeds in it.
Here are the ingredients:
After the pumpkin seeds have been toasted on the comal, you pick out any that are too dark. Once they cool, they get ground up in a food processor.
Tomatoes get roasted on the comal until they are nice and soft, and then get blended with a few pickled jalepeños.
The tomato mixture gets cooked with some onion and garlic.
When everything has cooled, the ground pumpkin seeds and cilantro get mixed in with the tomato salsa.
The end result looks like this:
Spread it on some tostadas that have been crisped on the comal, and you have a great appetizer. We can't wait to make this again when we get home.
