Emeril's Mole Sauce

Recipe by dogsandwoods

This arrived in an email from Cousin Donna just minutes ago. The email contains an attachment that says it's from E-Cookbooks.net and it is the "Insider's Recipes Master Edition". Recipezaar won't allow 1c+1T olive oil on the same line, so it appears twice. I haven't made this, so time and yield are estimates.

Now this is a great mole recipe and he did not even use tomatoes! Excellent recipe.
