Tried this recipe years ago and we really like it. Knowing that it could be spicy given the chipotle peppers and red pepper, I substituted a can of mild chiles and omitted the red pepper. None of my family likes spicy food; just flavorful food. This recipe is a great way to change up your taco night. Also, great for Thanksgiving leftovers.
I thought this was fabulous. Not a real mole by any means, but if it doesn't have an ingredient list the size of War and Peace, then don't expect it to be. Fast, easy and flavorful. I only used 1/4 teaspoon of red pepper because I was suspicious of using 1/2. It came out perfect. Just a tad spicy for my sensitive daughter, but I added sour cream to hers and she liked it.Read More
Mole' is one of my favorite dishes on this planet. That being said, I used a little less than 1/4 tsp. of the ground red pepper and I only used about 1/2 of the sauce. This recipe was so overly spicy we couldn't even taste the wonderful organic smoked turkey I used or any of the other wonderful ingredients in the mole'. Although I don't tolerate super spicy foods, my husband does. He brought the over-spiciness up to me first. In fact, when he consumes something that is beyond his tolerance, he gets the hiccups. He did with this. To tone the heat, I made a lime crema (sour cream with lime juice) to drizzle over the top, which only made it slightly bearable. I was disappointed in the recipe.Read More
