Mole, pronounced ‘moh-lay’, is Mexico’s national dish. When we visited Mexico I discovered that proper Mexican Mole is not just a “chicken chocolate sauce” like we usually find here in Australia, but rather a complex dish with many different ingredients. To make things even more interesting, there are many different kinds of mole with varying ingredients that traditionally takes days to make. The Mole Colorado is known as the ‘red’ mole and while its ingredients list is one of the simpler ones, it was my favourite out of all 7 Oaxacan Moles I was able to get my hands on!
