      this is an amazingly simple recipe and tastes great! it was my husband's first time having mole (and my hundredth) and he absolutely loved it. i added a lot more chocolate and doubled the recipe because i like a lot of sauce (i serve it over rice). i'm going to use it to make mole enchiladas tonight. thanks for sharing.

      This was my first attempt to make my own Mole, rather than buying a can of the base and going from there. This was FANTASTIC!! I made it for my DH for his birthday dish, per his request. I did add more cinnamon (almost 3 times the called amount) and tripled the recipe because we had company coming over. It went over very well, and I am so glad that I stumbled upon this recipe for this sauce. It has everything that I have on hand, and now I will never buy the canned sauce again. Thanks so much!!!

      This was good, but I thought it needed something else - just couldn't quite put my finger on what. Maybe some sugar or more salt? Maybe more seasoning in general (other than the chili powder, which was plenty)... Otherwise, this was super easy and quick to throw together. Made a nice soft taco with some lettuce and sour cream. Thanks for posting!
