    ciao's Note:

    I have one word for this dish--wow! It's so quick and easy to get to the table, but the flavor is amazing. The pork stays nice and moist,and is even better the second day. I like this with yellow rice and refried beans on the side. Don't let the chocolate throw you if you've never had mole sauce. It's such a small amount, and it doesn't make it sweet, it just adds a deeper, richer flavor to the sauce. From Cooking Light. A side note on the cilantro, if you don't like the flavor of it, you can leave it out. Or I've found that dried cilantro is much milder than fresh.

      This is truly a great recipe and one you should be proud of. I got a new stove top grill for Xmas and decided to grill the chops for a few minutes on each side instead of the oil but the rest of the recipe I followed exactly. I loved how the flavors build on each other. I am sooooooooo glad you suggested it! It will now be a family favorite! Thank you

      This is the first mole I've tried, so it is hard to compare it with others. I thought it was good and had nice flavor. I did not have red peppers so I used yellow only, but I think I would like it better without any peppers. The heat was just right, not overpowering. My pork came out done just perfectly. Not a difficult recipe to make.

      WONDERFUL! This recipe is so easy and flavorful-an easy mole-and we loved it!!! I simmered mine closer to 45 minutes to allow the flavors to develop and the chops were melt-in-your-mouth! I served this w/ guacamole and chips, spanish rice, and grilled zucchini w/ mexi spices. Thank you for a great recipe!!!
