  1. Very good recipe!!!! I added 1.5 tbsp garlic powder, 3 more tblsps hot red chile powder and a tblsp Mexican oregano. Very good!!! A must try!!! Also very easy!!!!
  2. I tried this recipe and is very easy to make. I bought some of my dried peppers and added a bit of chocolate that I bought in the Mexican Candy section at . When the mole is too spicy or hot you can add a bit of chocolate and I perfer to add the Chocolate Ibarra.
  3. Not quite what I was expecting. This dish was OK, but I wanted a more traditional mole dish.
  4. Not quite what we were expecting from a mole dish, but it was good.
  5. I thought this was fabulous and very easy but it got a thumbs down from my 2 teenaged boys and DH. I didn't change any ingredients but made it stovetop. Served on rice but if I made it again I think I'd go with tortillas for rollups.


I have been cooking ever since I can remember. I'm always experimenting with new recipes and new ingredients. Life is too short to make the same thing twice! I'm an author living in Ontario, Canada with my husband and two picky kids. We will be moving to Savannah, Georgia in the next year so I am honing my Southern cooking skills (although I may NEVER get my husband to like collard greens). I love all the great recipes and info on 'Zaar, and look forward to being more active here.
