Mole Sauce (Chocolate Based)

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Debbwl

A popular Mexican sauce made of spice and chocolate. We enjoy it over enchiladas, chicken, and burritos. I some times make a double batch as this freezes very well. *Please do not leave out the chocolate as it is what makes this mole sauce.* Can be made vegetarian by using vegetable broth in place of chicken broth.

I'm sure some might say what I made wasn't authentic, but because what I prepared from this recipe was absolutely wonderful! Although I followed the list of ingredients, I did cut the amount of chili back by half! Other than that, everything was as given in the recipe! I served it over chicken burritos & we were completely satisfied! Definitely something I'd be more than happy to make again! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
