Mole Poblano Recipe – A great combination Chocolate & Chile

Mole Poblano History,

The history of the Mole goes back to the pre-Hispanic era. The Aztecs prepared for the great lords a complex dish called “mulli”, which means soup or mixture. The first moles lacked chocolate, so it can not be located as a chocolate sauce, its structure is much more elaborate and requires careful preparation. The dish used in its first versions turkey meat, chocolate, and chile, the latter is used as a condiment in a lot of dishes in Mexico because it can be mixed.

There are several versions about the origin of the mole as we know it today. One of the versions places the mole poblano in the convent of Santa Rosa in the city of Puebla, capital of the state of Puebla (Mexico) when a nun ground different chilies and other spices together in a metate.
