One of the world’s oldest cultivated plants, Sesame Seed (Ajonjolí) adds nutty flavor and texture to foods all over the world. In Latin America, it is an essential ingredient in savory dishes, baked goods and sweets like nut candies. Mexico’s national dish, mole poblano, uses sesame seed to flavor the sauce and garnish the dish. The seeds are added to pipian, a pureed sauce for poultry and seafood. They make a nutty, crunchy topping for breads, including Pan de Muertos, the bread baked to celebrate the Day of the Dead. Sesame seed is one of the many products offered by El Guapo and you can be confident that they are of the highest quality. For the past 30 years, El Guapo has provided ingredients to make delicious, authentic Mexican meals for your family.
