Epazote has a sharp and strong flavour, sometimes compared to coriander, so it’s usually added to recipes towards the end to prevent bitterness. It goes particularly well with shellfish, eggs, salads, cheeses, pork fat, black beans, chilaquiles, enchiladas, potatoes and sopes.

Dried epazote from Mestizo Market can be added to a range of Mexican or Latino dishes to give them a distinct flavour.
