    ciao's Note:

    This is my version of mole sauce. It can hold its own against the mole at our great local Mexican restaurant. I usually double this recipe, but that's just me. The original recipe calls for 5 TBSP(yes, 5)of chili powder. I cut it in half, but you can take it from there. And don't judge the taste until you add the chocolate. It's just not done until you finish this step! Serve it over good chicken, over enchiladas,or burritos. I think it is good with lots of things. I served it the other night over leftovers from canarygirl's Chicken Verde, and it was superb!(Her recipe stands on its own as a great dish, I just enhanced my leftovers! Thanks, canarygirl!)

      This sauce is to die for! I made it with about a tbsp. of cocoa powder instead of the chocolate and I cooked chicken breast in it. Served with rice and peas it is a beautiful meal. I will definitely make it again.

      This was my first experience making Mole sauce, and I must say that it turned out pretty well! I think the chocolate flavor was just a bit strong, so I would reduce that next time, but other than that I loved it! I served it in pork wraps with guacamole, cheese and sour cream. Thanks L! :)

      Love it but some changes I made:
      First off, I made my own vegetable broth from organic carrots, onion, turnip and celery. This is much more flavorful base.
      I ground cumin seeds and cinnamon stick. I used quite abit more. I also put in a few dry thai chilis for heat.
      I strained the sauce before putting in the Dark Organic Chocolate.
      The sauce is going to go over grass fed meat wrapped in corn tortillas.
      The grass fed meat was cooked in crockpot in an array of seasonings to the point of shredding.
      Then I will top with shredded organice jack cheese and bake briefly in the oven.
