So this recipe is not homemade at all but I promise you it’s so amazing. Plus when it comes to something like mole making it from scratch can take all day. As delicious as mole is I really don’t have time for that most days.

So today’s recipe is perfect for whenever you get a craving for mole but don’t want to spend all day in the kitchen.

While the other mole recipe I have on my blog isn’t as labor intensive as some mole recipes are, it still isn’t by any means as easy as the recipe I’m sharing today.

Dona Maria is what makes this super easy and delicious mole possible.

Have you ever had mole from Dona Maria before? If you’re anything like me the idea of eating mole from a jar may not sound too appetizing but I urge you to try it. It’s so worth it!

The jar is actually filled with a mole paste that you mix with water or chicken broth (preferably chicken broth).

To make the mole just empty the contents of the jar into a pot over medium low heat. Slowly stir in 3 cups of chicken broth. Use a wooden spoon to break up the mole paste and stir it into a smooth sauce.

You have to stir for awhile to completely break up the mole paste. Expect to stir for ten minutes.

This is optional but I like to add half a tablet of Abuelita chocolate to the sauce. Trust me it’s really good!

Raise heat to medium and stir until chocolate has dissolved. Let the sauce come to a low boil. Then let the sauce simmer for a few minutes.

The sauce is now ready. Serve it over cooked chicken or add the chicken to the pot.

Also make sure you save the little jar the mole came in. It also serves as a cute little drinking glass!
