Papadzules is a traditional dish found throughout the Yucatan Peninsula. It consists of tortillas rolled around a filling of hard-boiled eggs and topped with a sauce made of pumpkin seeds (pepitas) and tomato.

This is a suitable dish for vegetarians, who might find it challenging to find non-meat dishes in Mexico’s more traditional restaurants, even in the bigger cities.
