Before this, I had never attempted mole but had it at a really good Mexican restaurant. Word of warning, for those unfamiliar (as I was), I smoked two blenders trying to put this together. The recipe doesn't emphasize that you WILL need to add a substantial amount of water/broth. It doesn't seem as thick as it actually is, so make sure to add plenty of liquid. If you end up adding too much, you can always take the cover off and cook the liquid off at the end. Also, it improved greatly after cooking it with the chicken. I was really worried at first when I had just made the sauce and tried some, it was weird and bitter but once it got several hours (crock pot) with the chicken in there it lost most of the bitterness and came together.
