My first attempt at making mole went pretty well I think, but I have no idea what it is supposed to taste like since I’ve never tried it. My partner ate it so it must be edible.
I used Rick Bayless’ recipe for Oaxacan Black Mole. I had to use his suggested substitutions since I couldn’t find the rare chiles (Chilhuacles). We ate this with tortillas.
WARNING: Mole-makin’ is time consuming. I think next time it will be a two-person gig.
Enough blabbing – let’s check out the photos!
