Ingredients

How to make it

  • Heat oil in a lg. skillet over medium heat. Add chicken and brown on all sides, set aside.
  • In the same skillet, sautee onion, bell pepper, poblano pepper and garlic. Cook and stir until veggies are soft and slightly caramelized. Stir in chili powder, cumin and cinnamon and cook 3 minutes longer.
  • Add tomatoes, raisins, chipotle peppers, chicken broth, beer, peanut butter, sugar and salt. Bring to a simmer and cook 20 minutes, stirring often.
  • Pour the sauce into a blender or food processor and add chocolate. Cover and blend until smooth.
  • Transfer the chicken into the dutch oven, or a deep heavy cooking pot, or skillet. Pour sauce over chicken. Cover and simmer for about 45 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through.
  • Serve warm over cooked white rice with warm tortillas. Garnish with a dollop of sour cream and sprinkle with fresh cilantro, if desired.
  • You will have lots of sauce left-over. Drizzle extra sauce over rice and chicken. The sauce can be frozen and served with chicken later on.

    This sounds good, but my grandmother's recipe didn't call for almost half the ingredients and the method of cooking was a slow process. Will try this process and see how it compares.

    The recipe is great but the bar in the middle can make you skip a step. It is asking to hold the recipe while looking at others can someone make it go away?

    I am making this as I type this and I will post a picture as soon as I am done. Having only been picking at the sauce, it is already smelling and tasting delicious. I did use 1 cup of Young's Double Chocolate Stout in place of the mexican beer and added about 1/2tbsp of red pepper flakes as I love my food extra spicy. I also used 6tbsp of unsweetened hershey's cocoa powder with 2 tbsp of butter instead because the only unsweet baker's chocolate I found at Central Market was $10 a bar! One small difference but i did use chopped red onion because i prefer it over the white onion.

    I already know this will be a 5 star recipe, this is better than my mother's mole!!

    Substituted an Anaheim Chili for the Poblano Pepper and Coca-Cola for the Beer, turned out great!

    I made this dish today and it is absolutely the best mole I ever have eaten. I took the skin off the chicken legs because I have to cut back on fat in my diet and get this...I ate it as a stand alone dish...Dr. told me to cut back on all things white...but when I have a carb day I will put this over white rice as it is meant to be eaten. Hands down the best mole I have ever eaten and this recipe is definitely a keeper! Again...thanks to the chef for sharing.

    I made this today and it was amazingly good! I love the hearty rich flavor of the sauce and the deep brown color! I had to make some changes because my teens can't handle spicy foods. I omitted the chipotle peppers. I also only used 1/2 the chocolate because I knew they would notice that too. I couldn't find dark Mexican beer so I used a non-alcoholic dark malt and added 1 tbls. of balsamic vinegar to it. The malt was very sweet so I doubled the salt. I also omitted the raisins because I'm not a big fan of them. I skinned the chicken thighs to cut down on the fat. To serve this I removed the chicken from the bones and added it back to the lovely thick sauce and poured it over white rice! YUM!!! I added my photo! =)

    Made this tonight and it was very good!!! I was worried because I haven't made anything like this and was worried we wouldn't like it, but we were pleasantly surprised! The sauce make A LOT so next time I might scale it down some. I did have to add a little more salt but other that that....delicious! Oh and the sauce is super good over the rice...I couldn't get enough of it!
