Dry mole recipe?

by Jenise » Thu Jun 14, 2012 5:38 pm

A year or so ago I found a recipe for a dry mole, made a batch and then forgot about it. Stumbled over the jar early this week and then put it to work, blending quite a bit of it with chicken broth and cornstarch to pour over some stir-fried pork and make a quick but absolutely wonderful pork en mole to serve over a mild chile rice. My gosh, was that good: it had a very assertive ancho chile taste (smokey but not smoked, rich and ripely sweet) with plenty of chocolate and other complex background spices. It was unmistakably mole, and a real keeper of a spice blend.

So I'd like to make more. But now I have no idea where I got the recipe for the mixture. :oops: Didn't find it here unless the recipe is buried in some thread with few other references to help me find it, so maybe it was here. Anyone remember such a recipe?

At first I thought you were trying to figure out how to cook the pest you had trapped in your garden, Jenise. Then I remembered we're not big on accent marks here. :wink:

Well, holy moley, Ole.

No, you're mixing an English word and a Spanish word in the same sentence. A mole molay would be "mole de topo."

Mole molay? I thought that was, like, a nearsighted Catholic priest.

I could make another play on words there, but it would get me in trouble with a bunch of people, so I won't. :lol:
