Mole Sauce - Quick and Easy, but Authentic

*waves hello*

Dang, I almost wished I hadnít stumbled across this forum. I just know that Iím gonna spend way too much time here.

Anyway, I have a quick question that Iím hoping for help with. Iím hunting for a mole recipe thatís quick and easy but tastes like you spent two days making it. Or, is that an impossible dream?

Tia for any and all suggestions.

hate to say it, but I think it is an impossible dream...unless you open a jar...or it is guacamole. I know you can buy some really nice pre-made ones online.

hard to duplicate the depth and layers of flavor of a good, long simmered mole and all of its components in a few minutes, but that is just my opinion, so don't be discouraged.

Let s know if you come up with anything,

I know. Iíve bought the paste in a jar, thinned it down with stock, but it still needs that *extra* something to perk it up. Iíve tried grating some dark chocolate into and it did help, butÖ

Guess I was kinda hopiní that some aubelita with a day job would drop by and offer some hints.

Well, hot dang, color me happy!!! My tummy is already going *num num* I now know what I fixin' for dinner tomorrow.

Should make the other member of our household very happy, too, since he could live on arroz con pollo. He likes to think that he's culinary inquisitive, but *ssshhh* he's actually got a rather pedestrian palate.

The one thing I am curious about is a banana in the ingredients? Probably woulda never thought of that myself.

Thanks so much for ferreting this out and typing in up.

The banana is essential. Make sure it's ripe.

I wasn't clear. The ORIGINAL recipe was from Sunset, but what I posted had several modifications that I made.

Isn't it permissible to post such a recipe?

Or is it preferable just not to mention the source?

Please clarify.

Thanks.
