Mexican Mole Sauce
This sauce is fantastic with all things Mexican and also as a dipping sauce for those crunchy corn chips that are hard to resist. We have added this recipe as part of our Mexican Taco board, we figured you may still be entertaining this coming few weeks and there is nothing easier than a board laden with delicious things that all go together in a self serve sort of way.
Mexican mole is always made with chocolate, and I confess I have had some nasty mole in my time; too sweet, too chocolatey or just not creamy and smooth as it should be. We have outdone ourselves on this one. It is spicy, with a hint of chocolate without any sweetness that is beyond what you need to balance the heat. It makes a lot, so is perfect for ongoing Mexican madness. We hope you love it!
