Mole Poblano is dark, rich sauce made from a variety of chiles and other food items, dating back hundreds of years in Mexican culture. While there are countless variations, most involve a similar set of ingredients: garlic, tomatoes, peanuts, chipotle chiles, mulatto chiles, Mexican chocolate and cinnamon. The ingredients are prepared and added, one at a time, to a large frying pan and cooked with oil and chicken stock. As each ingredient melts and begins to soften, various spices and seasonings are added to give it a sweet or spicy taste, as desired. The food takes several hours to reduce down to a sauce, so it is best to cook it with at least a few hours of time available.
Chicken Mole uses a traditional mole sauce as the main flavoring ingredient to chicken legs or breasts. The sauce can be prepared at home from scratch, or purchased ready-made from a store or restaurant. It can be served over rice or with beans and vegetables with a side of tortilla chips.
Guacamole is a dip made from avocados, along with lemon juice and various seasonings. It can be eaten with chips and vegetables, or spread over sandwiches and burritos.Learn more about Food Facts
