Of course, this isn’t the most authentic mole sauce recipe in town. But it’s one of the simplest recipes. Our easy mole sauce also tastes great. With the earthy flavors you’d expect: cinnamon, cocoa powder, brown sugar, etc., it pairs well with chicken and enchiladas. Or try mixing it with eggs or pouring it on top of fries for a delicious taste. It is also a great steak sauce for grilled dishes.
Mole sauce may not look appetizing on the plate. But here it has all the flavors!
If you always have a full spice rack stocked, most of the ingredients you probably already have. Ancho chili powder can be found in many grocery stores. Just look for good spices on store shelves. They can also bring in ancho peppers as an alternative and then simply grind the dried chilies into a powder for this recipe.
