Is Tostada Tuesday a thing ? No? Yes? Look y’all - I made mole sauce the other day and felt so proud. By no means is my recipe the authentic way to make it- but yooooo - I like adding my own personal touch to recipes /also I like to make things that don’t take a long time. Sooooo I sped this up a little bit- fyi: this is usually not a quick sauce. Also also also- Jose likes it - and he is not a fan of mole ‘usually’, so yay!
!Before I share the mole recipe I wanted to tell you how I served this- cause I added a little bit of a twist. An Indian Mexican fusion if you will. A flavor town situation you might say.
Basically what I’m saying is don’t knock something if you haven’t tried it, give things a chance. You just never know! It might be magic.

In a sauce pan cook the dried chiles for a few minutes on medium heat. Then place in blender with veggie broth (start with 2 cups - only add the other half a cup later if you need to) and blend. Add in the tomato, jalapeño, onion, peanut butter, chocolate or cacao and garlic and blend until completely smooth. Pour into a pot and add in the spices and stir.
