Epazote is a weedlike Mexican herb which adds a distinctive flavor. It is sometimes available at Fiesta and other Mexican specialty markets. Cilantro can be used as an alternative.

This is great! I halved the recipe but still used a full chipotle - great kick and so much flavor! I included the optional corn, and we enjoyed the extra burst of flavor they provided. Thanks for sharing! ZWT8
