Mole (mo-lay) is the generic name for deliciously rich and complex Mexican sauces thickened with seeds or nuts. The key to a good mole is balancing sweet and savoury elements - here, we’re using our CHIPOTLE BLEND which gives a lovely smoky flavour and very mild heat that works really well with the sweet peanut-based sauce.
