Fresh chicken simmered in a Guatemalan sauce made from tomatillos, cilantro, and pumpkin seeds
Jocón, believed to have come from the K’iche’ word jok’om meaning “mashed,” originated from the Mayans, who used their local ingredients to make an earthy, green stew from tomatillos and cilantro that they thickened with pumpkin and sesame seeds and tortillas. We make ours the traditional way, with stewed chicken and a fresh green sauce with a spicy kick from jalapeño.
