I discovered this luscious dip while on vacation in Santo Domingo but its origins are originally Yucatan. I couldn’t wait to get back home to make it myself! Here’s a rendition using raw pumpkin seeds and a boatload of fresh herbs. You could definitely spread this on tacos or just enjoy as a dip or spread on sprouted grain toast!
