We crafted this blend as a shortcut method for achieving a delicious homemade mole that's better than the jarred stuff but doesn't require hours in the kitchen. But it also stands up as a rub or a seasoning by itself.
Ancho, guajillo and other chiles form the base of this blend. We add sweet spices like cinnamon as well as a touch of cocoa, salt and masa harina. Our recipe uses chicken, but you can make the sauce alone and use it for enchiladas, chilaquiles or even tacos.
