This is a Mayan recipe from one of my favorite cookbooks. It's a hit at company potlucks;

Green Bean and Potato Salad w/Pepita dressing


Fernando Divina, Marlene Divina, Foods of the Americas: Native Recipes and Traditions, Berkley: Ten Speed Press, 2004.

Another breakfast favorite from that cookbook:

Buckskin Cakes

1/2 c pepitas, pinion or sunflower seeds, coarsely ground;
2 c flour;
1 tsp sea salt;
2 tsp baking powder;
3/4 - 1 c water;
2 Tbsp neutral oil for frying.

Mix dry ingredients and ground nuts/seeds. Add enough water to form a soft, pliant dough. Place in a bowl, cover with a dry towel and let rest at room temperature for 2-3 hours.

Divide the dough into 6 equal pieces. (I have to oil my fingers to keep from sticking.) Shape into 4" dia, 1/2" thick rounds. Heat oil in heavy skillet over med-high heat. Add cakes and fry, turning once, for 7 minutes each side. It should be puffed and golden brown.

Serve warm.



The grape dumpling recipe in this book is one of my favorites. Served with vanilla ice cream and garnished with a sprig of mint, it makes a great company desert.
