While that is baking let's make the Mole Sauce.


If you choose to use the additional Chile Pequin for your sauce, they come dried and need to be soaked for 15 minutes in hot water. I love a little extra kick! The It’s a Mad, Mad Mole seasoning is fantastic! It is not spicy but very flavorful.

In a large skillet, heat the canola oil and add the garlic and onion. Saute until onion is translucent. Carefully transfer the onion mixture to a blender with the fire roasted tomatoes, peanut butter, chilies (drained, if using), oregano, chicken stock and tortilla chips. Blend until very smooth. Add the It's a Mad, Mad Mole and blend together.
