Epazote

Dysphania ambrosioides
Native to Mexico and the tropical regions of Central and South America, epazote is a strong-tasting, resinous herb with a flavor profile reminiscent of mustard greens mixed with caraway, pepper and thyme. Essential to the cuisine of the Yucatan Peninsula, epazote is used throughout its growing region in soups, corn dishes and especially as a flavoring for black beans, where long cooking times help to mellow the somewhat astringent flavor of this herb.
