Slow Cooker Chicken Mole


"A dark, rich, complex flavored Mole recipe. I generally shred the chicken so it will soak up the mole sauce and serve it with warmed tortillas. It is always a hit with those who like spicy foods. This recipe can be played with easily to tailor it to your own level of hotness and/or cocoa/peanut flavor. Mole is a sauce that has a lot of variations. I've even served it as a dip with corn chips!"

Nice flavour, but very hot. This was after I removed the chipotle chilis from the adobo sauce as it was very hot on it's own. We couldn't taste the cocoa and I believe it's supposed to have a ...

For those of you who dont even follow the recipe, maybe you shouldnt be rating the recipe.

I was so surprised at the tastiness and simplicity of this mole. It really is comparable to other chicken mole dishes that I have enjoyed at authentic mexican restaurants. It was so easy too! We...

Very tasty! Something to consider is that there is no salt in this recipe other than what's contributed by the canned tomatoes, peanut butter, and chipotles. I used natural peanut butter (as i...
