    Elmotoo's Note:

    In looking at mole recipes, there is always some part that I would change. So, I did some research, read loads of recipes, picked out the parts (ingredients & measurements) that I like best & created my own recipe! I found some shortcuts; the ingredient list is still typically long but there's nothing difficult to find . It's YUMMY, imho. ;) It's nice & spicy & there's heat but it won't blow the back of your head off. Lovely texture. Great depth of flavor. It's also easy & doesn't take very long!

      This can be served with anything - chicken, beef, pork, tempeh, tofu,turkey -- tonight I served it with pork tenderloin that I seasoned with salt & pepper, seared well in a cast iron skillet, covered with a few ladlefuls of sauce & finished in a 400F oven.

      This was fun to do and great to eat. Milder and more complex than canned mole we've used in the past, this mole had a great texture that flowed smoothly into place and then held its shape for presentation. We put it over a charcoal-grilled steak -- mole is usually served on chicken, but we're odd that way -- and sprinkled a little grated cotija cheese on top for the final touch. Made for ZWT8.

      OH MY!!! This is worth TEN STARS. For years, I've eyed a Rick Bayless recipe for mole, but the ingredient list and the many many steps completely intimidated me! So, I settled for the base they sell in small jars. And it was good! BUT THIS, OMG...!!! Simple, and absolutely delicious. I followed the recipe exactly except they didn't have sesame seeds at the grocery. So, I substituted a tablespoon of tahini. Perfect! I also like my mole a bit on the sweet side, so I added an additional 2 teaspoons of sugar. Thanks so much for posting! Made for ZWT8 Team Om Nom Nommers.

      Great mole, loved this one! I used almond butter and raw cocoa powder and 85 % chocolate. We had it with turkey and oven roasted sweet potatoes, just the perfect comfort food for a cool, cloudy summer day :D Thanks for sharing your twist on mole!
      Made just for fun :)
