    Not traditional mole

    We are Mexican and we DON'T use Picante sauce, garlic, cinnamon (or other pie spices), or tomato sauce in our mole. While this may be a tasty recipe for some, it is not traditional Mexican mole. We usually eat mole with tortillas but Mexican rice is o.k. Remove the ingredients I named and add peanut butter, chicken broth, chopped sauted onion, 4 or 5 tablespoons of a mild chile powder, cumin, oregano and some people add ground pepitas, raisins (love it), burnt toast, and various other ingredients that are truly not necessary because the chile will mask many of these other ingredients. Some people add 20 or more ingredients. LOL Simmer the mole for about 30 minutes to marry all the ingredients and serve over cooked chicken.
