The dark mole sauce is made with several chilies, nuts, and chocolate. It is such a fabulous combination. Think of a chocolate bar with nuts and chili flavor. Preparing the mole sauce is usually labor-intensive and time-consuming. This recipe is a delicious shortcut with all the three important chilies: ancho, guajillo, and pasilla. It is even easier if you skip the tortillas and just pour the sauce over roasted meat.
