Many traditional mole paste recipes require upwards of 25 or even 30 ingredients. This recipe prepares an authentically flavored paste without quite so much hassle. The secret is to use our Diced Mexican 3-Chile Blend, a custom medley of ancho, guajillo and pasilla chiles, and also to add a bit of seasoned Mexican-style chocolate to reinforce the earthy flavor of the sauce.
