If you love Mexican food you have to find a good mole sauce. I love this sauce and use it every time I make enchiladas. It delivers the perfect amount of heat and is truly authentic. This is the perfect recipe to keep close at hand if you make a lot of Mexican food, because it’s easy to prepare and way better than making something with mole paste.
