Think I might have nabbed this from the newspaper. Generally speaking, moles are made with turkey or chicken, but this was quite the tasty surprise that doesn't take at all long to make. Recipe doesn't call for it, but I think a squirt of lime might brighten it up a tad And would be lovely as filling for a taco!
