    T. Woolfe's Note:

    I was asked on chat for my version of Mole. It's kind of the Central American equivalent of Curry paste, and just about as personal in varieties. I cut this down to absolute minimum in quantity. You'll likely want to at least double it but I was figuring for one. A lot of the Moles omit the Chili powder but add more varities of dried Chilies. Also ground Fried Bread as a replacement for or addition to the Chocolate. I know, it's a LOT of ingredients and even more bother, but the result with Chicken or Turkey... Ahhhh. I'll post a recipe for the Chicken Mole too.
