this a easy way to achieve a delicious, spicy, chicken mole. i don't know where i got the recipe, maybe Martha Stewart? we try to eat it at least every other week. great over steamed rice.

I loved the ingredient list and the smell of this mole sauce as it cooked; however, it turned out too bitter for our tastes. I tried adding some dark brown sugar to offset the bitterness, but I never achieved a taste that we could settle on. I made the dish as per instructions -- not sure where I went wrong. Would certainly try this dish again and next time lessen the amount of chocolate and chilies as I feel they may have contributed to the bitterness of the dish. Made for the My Three Chefs tag, June, 2012.
