This is very easy to prepare and even the kids like it! COOKS NOTES: Look for Dona Maria Mole. It is in a jar with the Mexican foods. Serve with sour cream, cilantro, salsa and avocado. Please note: this is an adopted recipe and I hope to make it soonest. If you make it before I do, I would appreciate feedback, Thanks ! ZWT REGION: Mexico.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a saucepan over medium high heat, stir together mole paste and about half of the broth.
  2. Once mixture is smooth, stir in remaining broth and chicken. Heat until simmering.
  3. Spray a 9-inch pie plate with non-stick cooking spray. Place two tortillas, overlapping, on bottom of pie plate. (Tortillas won't completely cover the bottom; that's OK.).
  4. Top with 1/4 of the chicken and sauce and 1/4 of the cheese. Continue layering, ending with sauce and cheese.
  5. Bake about 25 minutes, until cheese is melted and sauce is bubbling. Cut in wedges to serve.

Great idea! I added a layer of cooked rice and some chopped onion to make it go a little farther. Since I added the rice I put a little more broth into the mole (only 1/4 cup) to thin it out a little. I cooked it in my crock pot on low for 3 hours. I think the next time I make it I might add a layer of black beans as well and garnish with cilantro and sour cream. So yummy! I took it to a potluck at my church and everyone raved about it- so thanks for the recipe!!

If you like mole, this is a very good dish. Quick and easy. I put nonfat plain yogurt on it in place of sour cream. I also used only 6 corn tortillas using 1 cup of chicken/sauce mixture for layers. I did not find it dry at all.

I used my own mole sauce for this recipe. I did mix the shredded chicken with about 1/2c sour cream and about 1/2c shredded cheddar for moistness and flavor. Followed your recipe from there. Very good. Thanks.
