“Believe it or not this is a recipe that I saw Paula Deen make on TV today. Just make sure you don't make the same mistake she did- the pumpkin seeds should be shelled (pepitas) before you sprinkle them as a garnish. This recipe is much easier to prepare than most mole recipes and is best served with tortillas and rice.”
