Easy Slow Cooker Chicken Mole

Rating: Unrated

This is a shredded, slow-cooker version of my favorite chicken mole, created when I knew I wouldn't have time in the evening to make the real thing for dinner. If you can't find ancho chili powder, you can substitute regular, but use a little more; and use your favorite type of hot sauce. I love Golden Habanero, but any kind tastes good!

These authentic chicken enchiladas with mole sauce were inspired by a dish served at Seattle's La Carta De Oaxaca restaurant. Chocolate and dried chiles make a rich and flavorful sauce that tops the moist and tender chicken enchiladas.

An authentic Mexican dish - chicken slow cooked in a delectable sauce of chiles with a rich, never overpowering, chocolate background. Wonderful served with warm corn tortillas, rice and beans. Plan to have quite a mess to clean up afterward!

This is a good version to make with ingredients you can keep on hand. Serve with a rotisserie chicken or your own cooked chicken to give it an entirely different flavor. Rice and/or tortillas plus salad greens, sliced avocado, and chopped tomatoes round out a simple but special meal.

A dark, rich, complex flavored Mole recipe. I generally shred the chicken so it will soak up the mole sauce and serve it with warmed tortillas. It is always a hit with those who like spicy foods. This recipe can be played with easily to tailor it to your own level of hotness and/or cocoa/peanut flavor. Mole is a sauce that has a lot of variations. I've even served it as a dip with corn chips!

This beef chili recipe brings forward the flavors of cinnamon and chocolate often found in Mole Poblano style sauces. It really creates some depth and complexity in a otherwise fairly traditional chili recipe. This recipe is an award winning recipe that is a frequent crowd favorite.

What makes these enchiladas so good? The key to the exceptional flavor is the red mole sauce made from a delectable, pureed mixture featuring toasted almonds, onion, tomatoes, chipotle chiles, raisins and cinnamon. You'll turn dinner into a fiesta when you serve this kickin' dish!

Chocolate is the surprising ingredient in this one. Serve it over rice or with a side of veggies.

Beef Heart en Mole

Beef Heart is inexpensive and lean, but it's unusual to find in the grocery. My recipe is the only version I know of that is southwest style, in fact, this is fusion cuisine, because this is not an authentic southwest recipe. Mole adds a wonderful richness to this dish. You might want to make a pan of cornbread, it's great with this. Serve with red wine, and a salad of jicama, cabbage, and celery.

I make this mole at a five star restaurant. It has lots of flavor and it is a little bit spicy. I use it on quail, but you can use it on what ever you like.

This winter coffee beverage will wake you up quick. Goes great with Mexican breakfast foods (huevos rancheros, anyone?).

This is a microwave version of Mole Poblano, which consists of chicken in a dark, spicy chocolaty sauce full of nuts and sesame seeds. Most traditional mole recipes require several hours of preparation and cooking time; this version is for those of us who have limited time for cooking! Muy bien!
