Papadzules with a Cashew Red Bell Pepper Sauce

This is inspired from a pre-hispanic Mayan recipe called the Papadzules. Traditionally boiled eggs are stuffed inside a corn tortilla served on a bed pumpkin seed sauce and topped with a tomato salsa.I have made a variation of it with Cashews and red bell peppers sauce on bottom and a roasted tomato salsa on top.Makes a very versatile and fancy vegetarian dish for egg lovers.
