I've never done canned in my life but the jarred dona maria and jarred La costena is not bad.
Dona maria: spicier, better peppers
La costena: more "sweet" spices (cove, cinnamon) and chocolate, more interesting
Wether I use one, the other or both I always "doctor it up" as my mother would say. In other words I add extra bitter chocolate, some tortilla ash, chicken stock, a touch of cinamon and pretty much a little bit of "fresh" everything else that would go into mole, making it taste a lot more homemade. Btw do you need to cut the canned stuff into 4 like the jar stuff? Because that also make's a difference, since you need to dilute the jar stuff I use chicken stock.
