    Molly53's Note:

    Mole is a rich, dark, reddish-brown and smooth sauce made spicy and robust with a depth of flavor from a creative blend of seasonings that most often includes dried chiles, onion, garlic, and ground seeds (such as sesame or pumpkin (pepitas). But its best-known ingredient is unsweetened Mexican chocolate, which is used sparingly. Mole poblano is the sauce most commonly known outside of Mexico as mole sauce, although there are many different types. Courtesy of the Whole Chile Pepper Book, this classic Mexican sauce is excellent with poultry; serve it over a turkey or chicken breast. It is also terrific as a sauce over shredded chicken or turkey enchiladas.
