This recipe is from Ingrid Hoffman and it's so delicious. The flavors just meld together in a perfect mole. The ingredient list is long, but it really is an easy recipe. I like to serve mine over rice with some flour tortillas on the side.

- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 chipotle pepper, with 1 teaspoon adobo sauce from can chopped (or more to taste)

- 2 teaspoons chili powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
