Posted from a Sparkpeople challenge for healthy recipes. I've made this but not recently. About time since corn is in season again! From: Steven Raichlen's Healthy Latin Cooking Epazote- I haven't had this and it turned out OK. Other names for it: Pigweed, wormseed, lamb's quarters, goosefoot and Jerusalem oak. He claims there is no substitute but I'm guessing thyme or oregano would work.
