Karl’s Simplified Mole Poblano

Several years ago, I tried to make an authentic mole. This is a Mexican sauce—like many others—with no set list of ingredients. Basic ingredients include chilies, fruit, some kind of seeds or nuts, one or more herbs and/or spices, and frequently chocolate. Just about every family, in Mexico and beyond, has their own variation—some with as many as 30 ingredients.

Karl’s Mole Poblano

A few months ago I had tried making molé for the first time, based on a recipe by Ty and Juels. This was one of our Sunday challenges before I started writing this blog. I found Ty’s recipe, but I could not help myself, I had to make some changes. That is just the kind of cook I am, I even have trouble following my own recipes. I rarely make the same dish the same way twice, I am constantly tinkering.
