I've noticed a few comments that it is too 'hot".... please read the recipe... it calls for ONE - finely chopped canned chipotle...... NOT one entire can of them! LOL.... thanks for the giggle! If you follow the recipe you will end up with a very nice mole!
This is a perfect mole sauce that is so easy! I added one small can of stewed tomatoes because I wanted more sauce, and since I didn't have corriander I used cilantro. Next time I will omit the sugar because the rasins and peanut butter add enough sweetness. Half of an adobe chipotle will add the heat to please tender palettes. I never thought I would make a homemade mole sauce but this was very easy!
I absolutely love mole but am also VERY picky about the quality. This was the closest thing to authentic mole that I have been able to find! Delicious!
I added 2 circles of mexican chocolate though in place of the other chocolate it calls for and I added some extra peanut butter. This was so easy and tastes FANTASTIC! I had leftover mole for a couple of days and it was still great!
this was so delicious i could not believe i made this !!
i followed the recepipe to a T however i diced up 2 chipotle peppers & used 1 whole "abuelita" chocolate disk (mexican hot chocolate found in the ethnic aisle of youre local grocer)..
ps , if youre debating the peanut butter part, dont hesitate.. my mexican grandmother also used p.b in her mole..
i actually used chicken boneless thighs ( breasts dry out )& threw in 2 drumsticks & the meat fell off the bone sparkling clean...
i served this w/frijoles, white rice & avocado & cilantro garnish....
i will use this recipe forever!
I was so surprised at the tastiness and simplicity of this mole. It really is comparable to other chicken mole dishes that I have enjoyed at authentic mexican restaurants. It was so easy too! We don't have canned chipotle's here so I added in a fresh jalapeno and some chipotle seasoning and it worked out perfectly. Served with brown rice plain yogurt (sub for sour cream) and fresh cilantro. Highly recommend this one! We will definitely make again! Thank you!
Very tasty! Something to consider is that there is no salt in this recipe other than what's contributed by the canned tomatoes peanut butter and chipotles. I used natural peanut butter (as in one ingredient - peanuts) and low-sodium tomatoes so added some salt at the end too. Also it seemed slightly bitter (probably due to the lack of added sugar in the natural peanut butter) so I stirred in about a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar which instantly solved the problem. Will definitely be making this one again!
Meets ALL criteria! This was super easy very filling economical and not a calorie-blow. It is one that I will go back to again and again. One thing I will do differently: saute the onions before putting in the slow cooker. They seemed a little undercooked. Otherwise it was great!
As close to my favorite Mexican restaurant's recipe as I've found! A couple of changes for my own preference: I removed the chicken pureed the sauce with an immersion blender and then added shredded chicken back in. Next time I'll use a little chicken broth to thin the sauce to desired consistency. A great start and extremely easy to make. I skipped the raisins because I don't like them and used whipped peanut butter (so I did add an extra dash of sugar in the end). Quite yummy!
Nice flavour, but very hot. This was after I removed the chipotle chilis from the adobo sauce as it was very hot on it's own. We couldn't taste the cocoa and I believe it's supposed to have a chocolate flavour to it? Nice just the same but I recommend severely reducing the peppers (can size isn't listed in recipe) and increasing cocoa.
