Fancy some Mole sauce for your supper tonight?
I discovered Mole sauce at Waitrose, I was looking for Mango Chutney and came across it!
What was it?
Was it made from Moles?
Being inquisitive I bought a jar to take home.
Dark with Chocolate
Rich with Chipotle
Well, that’s what it said on the jar!! Was it a desert sauce or was it savoury!
On returning home I discovered it was a spicy paste to add to chili or fajitas, it was full of paprica, garlic, onion, chipotle and chocolate.
That evening we made fajitas, I fried an onion, a red and yellow pepper and added diced chicken. Next a big tablespoon of of Mole sauce was stirred in, we spooned the mixture into warmed tortilla wraps and devoured them!!
The Mole sauce added a gutsy, deep spicy flavour without the heat, I would definately recommend Mole sauce for a fajita meal especially since it’s not made from a single Mole!!!
