A chicken dish from the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico. I found it on a website stating that it came from a family in Cancun.

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.
