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 :)
