My sister has a ton of cook books that are completely different than the ones that I have. She had a recipe for Mole that she had been wanting to try for awhile and she used this opportunity to make it. She and I always thought that Mole was a day long process, but this recipe was so simple and TASTY!!!!! It rivaled some of the authentic Mole I have had in restaurants and at the homes of Hispanic friends. Did I mention EASY?
1 can chicken broth
3 T sesame seeds
1 med onion, diced
1 garlic clove, minced
1 square semisweet chocolate
1/3 C golden raisins - I know...this sounds barf, but it isn't!
1/4 C slivered blanched almonds - what is blanching? Can any one tell me?
1 10 oz can mild red enchilada sauce
2 ready-to-eat taco shells, crumbled - we used tortilla chips
1 slice white bread, crumbled - my sister is healthy and only had wheat bread
1 t salt
1/4 t ground cinnamon
1/4 t ground coriander
1/4 t anise seed, crushed - we couldn't find anise seed so we used anise extract
1/8 t ground cloves
1/8 t pepperCooked turkey - We used 5-6 poached chicken breasts
In 12 inch skillet over med high heat, cook sesame seed until lightly browned; remove to paper towel. In same skillet, in hot oil cook onion and garlic until tender; stir in chocolate. Heat until chocolate melts.In covered blender container, blend 1 T toasted sesame seed, chocolate mixture and remaining ingredients until smooth. Return mixture to skillet and stir in chicken broth. Over medium heat, heat to boiling, stirring constantly. Spoon some sauce on chicken; sprinkle with remaining sesame seed.
We served this up in flour tortillas with a little cilantro over the top. YUM!
The only draw back to this meal was the spicy factor. I grabbed the bottle of red pepper flakes when I sat down at the table. But since we were serving up little kids, it was probably a good idea to keep the heat down. The kids LOVED it! All of them except my niece, Meagan. She thinks she is a vegetarian...she is just a picky eater. She eats hot dogs, hamburgers and almost anything with cheese on it. She sure is lucky we love her! :)
