In the spring of 2001, I happened to be in Vidalia, Georgia, checking out the onion crop, when I made a very good decision to stop in at a small mom and pop Mexican grocery. The lady who was running the store (Laura Medrano) spoke no English and I spoke no Spanish; however, this did not prevent her from answering all my questions about Mexican food -- we used hand signals, Pidgin English/Spanish, and occasionally she would grab something off the shelf to show me an ingredient. Anyway, after about half an hour, she successfully conveyed to me how to make a good chicken mole. Since then, I've made it twenty or thirty times and we really like it. This is an easy crock pot recipe and I think that your family will like it too!
