As per a request on General Topics, here's a Tripe in mole recipe from Diana Kennedy.
Kennedy in 'My Mexico' has Pancita en Mole recipe (tripe in mole), taken from an old Mexican cookbook.
In sum the recipe calls for cooking tripe and chickpeas separately.
A simple mole, or chile puree, is made from mulato chiles, garlic, salt, and pepper. The puree is fried for a bit (8 minutes) in lard, and then the chickpeas, tripe, and broth are added, and cooked till blended.
I'll look at the recipe to see if I need to add some details.
