MOLE - December 2020 Dish of the Month

MelMM | Nov 30, 202010:30 AM     44

In a nail-biter of a voting round, we chose MOLE as our Dish of the Month for December. This is kind of special for me, as I often make mole around Christmas. We have a lot of variety to choose from this month. The focus will be on the sauce, which can range from a mole poblano, to any of the Oaxacan moles, including pipians and manchamanteles, and yes, even Americanized shortcut versions. Do what works for you. Your reporting may, of course, include the dishes in which you use your mole. And don't forget, if you have more mole than you can use, stash it in the freezer. There is nothing better than having such a complex sauce a short defrost away.

This post is our reporting thread for December. So post your mole cooking adventures here. Pictures are encouraged, but by no means required. Let us know the source of the recipe, any changes you make, and most important of all, how you liked it and if you would make it again.

Per Chowhound rules, do not post a recipe by another author verbatim. You can summarize ingredients and technique, and we encourage you to do so. This thread will remain open beyond December, so if you cook moles in a later month, please continue to add reports. We love seeing past DOTM threads revived!
