From Wikipedia.... I would add a touch of one of these to taste to subsitute
Epazote is used as a leaf vegetable and herb for its pungent flavor. Raw, it has a resinous, medicinal pungency, similar to anise, fennel, or even tarragon, but stronger. Epazote's fragrance is strong but difficult to describe. It has been compared to citrus, petroleum, savory, mint and camphor.

We use a combination of fresh dill and cilantro in our recipe.

Oregano works also. Epazote is affectionately called Mexican oregano.

Nothing else will deliver the pow of epazote but you can substitute classic Mexican flavors such as cilantro and Mexican oregano.

epazote has a very distinctive taste but if you don't want to use it, I wouldn't subtitute it because as long as you have a nice pasilla flavored broth, you won't need it and other herbs won't necessarily make it good

As an aside, epazote is easy to grow. I put one plant in my garden this spring, and pretty much ignored it. It's huge.
