10 min mole recipe:


1 lb. Guelaguetza's Mole Paste

2 lbs. red tomatoes, cut in fours (or 2 cups of tomato sauce)

½ cup of Water (if using fresh tomatoes)

2 cups of broth

¼ teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon Oaxacan chocolate (can substitute with brown sugar)


Place the tomatoes and water in a pot and bring to a boil for 20 minutes. Pour boiled tomatoes into a blender and blend for 10 seconds. (You can skip this step if using store bought tomato sauce)

Strain the tomatoes back (or tomato sauce) into the pot and stir in Guelaguetza's mole paste until the paste has fully dissolved.

Stir for another 10 minutes until the mole comes to a boil.
