Before I say anything, lemme say this.
I KICKED THIS MOLE’S ASS!
But it wasn’t easy.
Mole has got to be the most complicated dish on the planet to make.
About 1007 ingredients, 4 grocery stores visited and half a days prep time.
And I still managed to make some epic grossness.
The most bitter crap I’ve ever put in my mouth.
That’s what I get for following Emeril Lagasse’s recipe to the T…almost.
After a few days of online research to see how to “fix” the boatload of gooey crap I’ve created and being told by my hispanic friend that her mother never made mole cuz it was too much work, I added the following ingredients to bump it up a notch:
Bananas, Dove chocolate bar, chocolate covered raisins, three tablespoons peanut butter, extra cinnamon and cloves and allspice.
I basically dumped my entire pantry directly into the pot and crossed every appendage and prayed to the Mole gods for something halfway decent.
It was actually tasty! I did it!
NEVER AGAIN WILL I MAKE THIS HIGH MAINTENANCE MEAL!!
If you dare, here’s the original recipe:
