MOLE MADE EASY: Only 4 Ingredients
MOLE MADE EASY: Only 4 Ingredients
Mole (pronounced MOH-lay) is a Mexican sauce made with chiles, spices, nuts, and other various ingredients. Some mole recipes (such as this one) contain chocolate. The sauce is known for its rich, earthy, and nutty flavor. It can be used as a sauce or a marinade.



  1. Heat large skillet on stove with burner set to low. Empty jar of mole into skillet. (It's a thick paste, so it's helpful to use a butter knife to get it out.)
  2. Add 4 cups of chicken broth and raise heat to medium high.
  3. Stir and break up pieces of paste until it's dissolved into chicken broth. The sauce will begin to thicken as it cooks.
  4. Break Mexican chocolate into smaller pieces using a serrated knife, then add chocolate to pan and let it melt into the sauce.
  5. Add in peanut butter.
  6. Lower heat and stir continually until all the ingredients are melted in and you're left with a smooth sauce. 
  7. Enjoy this delicious mole sauce while it's hot.

TIP:  The most common Mole is chicken.  After you have boiled your chicken you'll want to keep the water to use as your broth.

Here is a slightly "kicked up" version using your chicken broth and a few other items.


  • About 16 pieces of chicken
  • 2 Jars of Dona Maria mole sauce
  • a few cups chicken broth (From Cooked Chicken) 
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • piece of onion (about half)
  • pinch of cumin
  • 2 tbsp chicken bouillon 
  • 3 tbsp peanut butter


What's your reaction?
