NOTES : There are many variations of this national dish of Mexico. Our fiery version pairs wonderfully with chicken; the rich flavor also complements pork and turkey. The mole sauce may be made ahead of time. Recipe by: Ladies Home Journal Posted to MC-Recipe Digest V1 #940 by "firstname.lastname@example.org"
