Making a Mexican mole sauce can be a daunting task – some having over 20 ingredients, and taking a day to make. Our Serious Foodie Mirasol Mole Cooking Sauce takes out all the hassle, and gives you no excuses for trying this wonderful sauce (click HERE to purchase on line).
The star ingredient of this sauce is the medium hot mirasol pepper, a native Mexican variety that is mostly dried before use. Mirasol means ‘looking at the sun’ in Spanish and describes the erect nature of the pods which grow on a compact plant. Besides being an attractive plant, the mirasol pepper has a unique flavor of strawberry. This flavor works exceptionally well with the touch of chocolate that is a key ingredient of any mole sauce. A good mole will have only a hint of chocolate.
This dish had outstanding flavor, and was also ridiculously simple to make. We suggest pairing the meat with either rice & beans, or our quinoa with mole sauce recipe (click HERE to see the quinoa recipe).
