Note the comment about mole poblano traditionally being served with turkey. We'll be doing a post-Thanksgiving turkey on Monday or Tuesday.
The reason for trying Cristy's recipe is that it can be kept low fat, low salt and low sugar, meeting all the goals of my post bypass diet.
The ingredients are:
Mexican chocolate which contains raw sugar and cinnamon
Just enough oil to fry the chiles and sesame seeds
If you would like to try mole just Google "recipe mexican mole" without the quotes.
Besides the mole ingredients, we also picked up some strawberries at about 96 cents/lb, peanuts and raisins I use for snacks.
The mole ingredients and snacks plus a taxi ride back up the hill came out at about $17. Mole is not an everyday delicacy unless you buy a small jar of commercial mole in the supermarket, the same brand as found in the Mexican Foods section of US supermarkets, good but not as good as homemade.
