    Mole Poblano Paste is the base of the traditional Mexican mole poblano sauce, dating back to the concoction that was invented in the 16th century by Sor Andrea de la Asuncion, a Dominican nun in the city of Puebla. The sauce is complex and time consuming, usually consisting of over twenty ingredients. Known as Mexico's most iconic dish, the complicated sauce is made of the "holy trinity" of Mexican chiles (the pasilla, ancho, and mulato) combined with toasted bread, nuts, chocolate, oils, sugar and a variety of other spices and ingredients. It is truly an authentic dish that epitomizes the flavors of Mexico.
