This was my first time trying Mole - and decided to try this one due to the addition of Kahlua, which intrigued me. This was really unusual - but very good.

This is a rich and wonderful sauce. Rather than bake this and heat up my kitchen, I simmered it on the stovetop. It was much enjoyed by all. Thanks for sharing!

Very good! I made it a little easier by putting the sauce over frozen, un-browned boneless skinless chicken breasts and I cooked them an hour. I loved that the sauce was so easy to make and used ingredients I had on hand. I used Heinz chili sauce. The Mole sauce tastes kinda like a sweet barbeque sauce. I loved it with the sesame seeds, chopped tomatoes and green onion. I served it with caribbean black beans and rice. Thanks for the keeper recipe...everyone agreed they would like this again. Made for Zaar Tag.
