Many of my friends go crazy for my mole, and this year I’ve decided to make them a batch as a Christmas gift, using this recipe from my native Mexico.

Directions

  • 1 In a pot over medium heat, add the water, chiles, garlic, onion and peanut. Cook for 20-30 minutes until the chiles are tender.
  • 2 When ready, let cool for a bit and, using a food processor or blender, mix all the ingredients until you achieve a thick consistency.
  • 3 Transfer the mixture back to the pot and add in the remaining ingredients. Mix with a large spoon or hand mixer. If you need to make it more watery, add an extra cup of hot water. However, remember that the sauce should be thick; so the more water you add, the more time you’ll need to leave it on the stove to achieve the desired consistency.
  • 4 When ready, pour the mole into the mason jars and cover with their lids. Stick a label on each jar to identify them and store in the fridge.
  • 5 If properly sealed and stored in the refrigerator, the mole will last two weeks. You can also freeze it if you use freezer-friendly containers.
