How to thin mole?

I have a jar of not ready to use Mole from Dona Maria. On their website I see they have ready to made packets, but I've never seen them in stores.

So, anyway it comes out in clumps. What do I do to thin it out for use? I mixed some with chili that I cooked for about 45 minutes, but no luck. When the chili was done, I still had some big lumps.

I had browned the beef, added my onions, tomatoes, water, spices, and mole and cooked for about 45 minutes.

Maybe instead of adding water to the chili, I add boiling water to the mole, then add all that to the chili?
