How to Make Mole Sauce

Save

Mole is a generic sauce in a lot of Mexican dishes. It actually means "sauce" in the native language. Outside of Mexico, mole sauce refers more specifically to mole poblano, a sauce popular in Puebla that uses chili peppers, Mexican chocolate, spices and a thickening agent like tomato sauce. It is often served over chicken but can be used for in any meat dish.
