I have a question: How does the chicken get together with the yellow mole?

We are all angels with one wing. Only together we can fly.

You welcome ,Eric giggler.

You are right,man. The spirit of EL MOLE is in the sauce.
Some vegetarian nutritionist said years ago that, taking away the Guajolote,he could be a fan of Mole, because of its nutritional properties.

Other thing that surely you know : for our culture and traditions, the hotter the sauce is the better.
By the way,my friend, talking more about chocolate ,I have found a kind of chocolate in Veracruz wich is 80% Cacao. Of course we never find one of that kind in the supermarket.

Oh,and I am posting another traditional meal, now from Yucatan.
