I discovered mole sauce (pronounced mo-lay) shortly after moving to the Southwest and I was immediately hooked! Mole is a Mexican sauce with ingredients like peppers, dried fruit, cloves and chocolate, among many others.
Unfortunately, making mole sauce is very time consuming so many Mexican restaurants don't offer it on their menus. I was thrilled to recently find prepared mole sauce in the Hispanic food aisle at my local grocery store! Of course, I doctored it to make it my own and now I can have mole at home whenever I want. If you haven't had mole, try this recipe and let me know what you think!
