Manchamanteles Mole with Jalapeno Pickled Onions

In Mexico ‘mole’ (pronounced mo-lay) is the name for a sauce made predominantly of chillies and a range of other ingredients from spices and fruit, to nuts, seeds and even chocolate! This version is called manchamanteles which literally translated means "tablecloth stainer" due to the addition of annatto seeds which create a bright red oil. Ground ancho and pasilla chillies are also added along with cinnamon, charred vegetables and pineapple resulting in a deliciously rich and fruity sauce.
