This was AMAZING! Admittedly, I've never had Mole-Style anything so I didn't know what to expect. I was looking for something new, and this was unlike anything I've ever tasted! I didn't have the campbell's soup, so I substituted it with another simple french onion soup recipe from this website. After pulling the pork apart at the end, I slowly added the leftover liquid to it to get it to my preferred texture. As per another reviewers suggestion, I served this with spanish rice. I also added sour cream and cheese to the tortilla after trying it as stated in the recipe, and I found I liked it better with the added ingredients.

The recipe as is is woefully underseasoned. I added TONS of extra cumin. One guest really liked it and I sent the leftovers home with her b/c I found it to be fairly gross. I wouldn't say it was a big hit with the rest of the guests.

I have to first say that I made this tonight using a much smaller piece of left over pork (about 1lb), so I downsized all the ingredients. I also just simmered on the stove since I was using leftovers and did not need to actually cook the pork. I thought the flavors were great. Moles are usually very complicated and they do vary in taste greatly from recipe to recipe. This recipe was easy and had a nice result. I made some spanish rice and corn and we used those items in the burritos too!

Great flavor, but I did forget the chocolate. I didn't use tortillas, instead I served over brown rice with a side of mexican corn. I will make again.

Made this true to recipe portions, but used chipotle powder in place of chili powder. My pork was closer to 4.5# so I added a little extra spice without measuring. Cooked the pork on low for 6h and it was so tender i couldn't even take it out it just fell apart. Before I put the chocolate bits in i tasted the meat and it was spicy but seemed to be missing something and then when i put the chocolate bits in and tasted it -that's what it needed! Will test out for dinner tonight. Will serve w/ some sour cream as the chipotle really spicy!

This recipe is amazing! It's very rich - the flavor is quite dark. I doubled all of the spices and the chocolate because I tend to like things very flavorful. In retrospect, I may not have doubled the chocolate. Still an awesome recipe and exactly what I wanted. I served it on kaiser rolls without the tomatoes or cilantro and loved it that way. Enjoy, all!

Really yummy and easy! It's still good about 4 days later reheated. A very unique taste- if prepared as top-rated reviews suggest.

Would NOT recommend this receipe. Cinnamon destroyed the flavor Very disappointing and most of all, my family :( Will research a receipe that focuses on a more traditional Mole sauce...
