Mole Posole

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by justcallmetoni

This recipe first appeared in Vegetarian Times magazine. A hearty, rich and filling combination of beans and hominy in a mole laced broth, it looks like a certain crowd pleaser. Have not tried it yet but plan to do soon very soon. Submitted for 'Zaar World Tour.

This made a very rich and interesting dish. I added garlic and used additional onion. I did not add the water but instead added a bit more tomato, and thus kept it thick enough to serve rolled up into tortillas. I did not find this remotely bland, but that may be a matter of the mole sauce used; the one I happened to buy was full of flavor. This was my first experience with mole, and I am glad I have the rest of the sauce for future use. Thanks.
