Herbed Pumpkin Seed Mole

(Mole Verde con Hierbas) In Oaxaca, green mole (mole verde) is one of the seven famous moles. What makes this one different is not just the lack of chocolate, but also the fresh herbs, which give it a fabulous green color. Of course, every region or family has their own way of making mole. I learned this recipe from my friend from Puebla, who calls it "mole pipían," referring to the pumpkin seeds used in it. Whatever you call it, it's fantastic with chicken, fish, pork, or as a spicy sauce over a bunch of enchiladas.
