Panile De Espinaca Spinach Panile

Panile is a Mexican dish, which has been around for centuries, if not longer. This is a traditional Mexican dish, which predates the arrival of the Spanish in the new world and is unlike many Mexican dishes in that it is not influenced by European cuisine. Panile makes use of the peanut, which is in fact indigenous to the Americas.

However, this dish does include an important Old World ingredient, spinach. The Spanish introduced the vegetable to Mexico, where it was enthusiastically adopted by the indigenous population – one can find spinach burritos at many taquerias, in fact. This spinach panile recipe blends the old and new worlds with an unusual, but wonderful combination of peanuts, spinach, smoky pasilla peppers, and corn tortillas.
