Introducing the Serious Foodie Mirasol Mole Sauce
Mole is a very misunderstood sauce in the US – but one that is ever-present in Mexico. There are as many Mole recipes as there is Mexican grandmas (sort of like Italians with tomato sauce). Many of the store-bought versions and some of those served in Mexican restaurants are not balanced – too much of certain spices, too much cocoa, too salty, and/or too sweat. Which is why many people avoid Mole.
After a lot of research and testing, we came on a quite wonderful version that uses one of the most amazing Mexican peppers – mirasol. It has a fruity/berry quality unlike anything else we’ve ever tasted – and it’s not nearly as mouth-numbing as a habanero. For our Mole sauce, you’ll find a balanced blend of vegetables and spices (it’s not too spicy hot), and with a hint of cocoa.
The Mole sauce is often served with chicken and pork, and also matches well with eggs and vegetables. We will be showing a number of traditional recipes using the Serious Foodie Mirasol Mole Sauce in the coming weeks – enchiladas, tacos, etc.
You can find our Serious Foodie sauces at one of our local partner gourmet stores, or order on-line at www.serious-foodie.com.
