To add more heat
For extra heat, do not seed the peppers.
Epazote is a strong flavored, wild herb popular in Mexican cooking, especially stews and bean dishes. No herb has a similar flavor, but complimentary substitutions include savory, cilantro or parsley.
Hominy is dried white or yellow corn kernels from which the hull and germ had been removed. It's sold canned, ready-to-eat or dried.
