Learnex, English Forever ¡Aprende Inglés para Siempre!

The Romeritos is a typical Christmas dish. It is Mexican and it consists of springs of a wild plant known as seepweed. That name means “little rosemary”. They are served with patties of dried shrimp and potatoes in mole sauce.

In the Mexico basin where the Aztecs took advantage of everything of their surroundings, instead of end up with the undergrowth that invades their maize field, they decided to try it.

Guided by this curiosity they found out that “romeritos” far from being an useless invasive plant, it could be part of a daily diet.
Serves: 6 people.

  • 1 1/2 cups of «Pasta de mole».
