With my library checkout of Bayless's Mexican Everday nearing return time, I came home after school to give the simple Yellow Mole a go.
4 torn guajillo chiles
1/4tsp each cumin, cinn, allspice
1 tsp oregano
2 garlic cloves
4 c. broth
1/2 ib roasted tomatoes
2 Tbl Masa Harina
You basically puree the chiles,onion, garlic, tomatoes, 1c broth, & spices well. Then push through a sieve into a pot with some heated oil.
Fry the liquid down to a paste. Then add the rest of the broth with the whisked in MH and cook down to till a thin cream soup consistency.
I am going to buy some pork or chicken and some veg to poach and add this to the sauce with some rice maybe. Or maybe just make some enmolades (a la enchiladas).
Here are some Pictures:
