Chocolate Chicken Mole is a very popular Mexican dish that can be prepared in countless regional variations.


Mole meaning mixture or concoction is a traditional Mexican sauce made from a variety of local ingredients. It is traditionally made using powdered chillies or red chilli paste, cinnamon, smoked paprika, tomato and a hint of dark chocolate to make a deep, decadent sauce with a light heat, smokiness and velvety finish. This sauce is a very popular dish at celebrations. The dark chocolate adds striking color while the spices add richness to the Mole sauce.


Moles are great sauces of Mexico that are richly spiced and complex. They can be green, yellow or red but most familiar is the one made with the seductive addition of dark chocolate. Mole is said to be the signature sauce of Mexico, particularly a delicious example of this trend and style.  This recipe is a simplified version of the tradition Mole. Mexican chocolate adds an intriguing complexity to the smoky, savory sauce.


Mole preparation begins with at least one or more type of chili peppers. The addition of red chilli paste, cloves, allspice, and cinnamon add up to that extra zest to the sauce. Chocolate should be added at the end of the cooking. The key element of this yummy sauce can be grouped into the different taste senses that includes: chillies (spice, hot), sour (tomatoes), sweet (raisins, fennel seeds) and other flavoring spices. All spices/ ingredients are roasted and ground into a fine powder or paste which elevates the flavors and aroma, hence making mole sauce a strong flavor especially the dark one and is considered to be an acquired taste for most.
