    Classic recipe

    Turkey in Red Mole

    In classic mole poblano, turkey is a popular choice for protein, although chicken is also very common. The rich, spicy flavors of our Ancho, Guajillo and Pasilla Negro Chiles paired with fragrant cinnamon and chocolate create the deep flavors of this traditional dish. Given the numerous steps involved in the recipe, consider dividing the preparation over several days to make the task more approachable.
