Directions

120 min.
1. Step

In the mole poblano recipe, start by roasting the chilies in a large pan without oil until they are fragrant and their color has changed slightly. This step intensifies the flavor and is the determining factor in the aromatic profile of the mole. Be careful not to burn the chilies.

2. Step

In a separate pan, toast the sesame seeds, peanuts, cinnamon stick, cloves, pepper and anise seeds until fragrant. Be careful, because these spices can burn quickly.

3. Step

Place the chilies, spices, tomatoes, onion and garlic in a blender and blend to a paste.

4. Step

Toast the slice of bread and add it to the blender. This will give the sauce a nice texture.

5. Step

Sauté the paste in a pan with hot oil and then add the chocolate. Once melted, add the chicken broth. Let the mixture boil and reduce to a minimum until it reaches a thick consistency.

6. Step

Add the chicken to the sauce and simmer for 40 minutes. It will become so juicy and tender that it will fall right off the bone.

7. Step

Serve the Mole Poblano dish with cilantro and enjoy. An experience from the Mexican cuisine !
