Serious Eats Nick Kindelsperger 5 comments

Serious Heat: Silky, Spicy Mole Sauce

Serious Eats Andrea Lynn 22 comments

Mole brings together the wonderful worlds of chile and chocolate. The smooth, flavorful sauce is very versatile. It can smother enchiladas, chicken, sweet potatoes, you name it. The concept of mole is that the sauce is the main event--what it's served with is in a supporting role. More
