1/2 cup raw peanuts (no salt- not roasted)
1/4 cup of almonds
1/2 cup of gamesa animal cookies
1 platano macho (plantain)
1 piloncillo (total used was 1/4) OR 1/4 cup of sugar
6 garlic cloves
1/2 large onion or 1 med onion
1 tbsp salt + Extra
1/2 cinnamon stick
1/2 Tbsp cumin seeds
3 pieces of clove
1/2 tsp anis seeds
1/2 tsp coriander seeds
1 cup of lard + extra
1 corn tortilla

To prepare mole
1 to 2 cups of mole paste
3 to 4 cup of chicken broth
1 whole boiled chicken
Toasted sesame seeds

Step 1
Remove seeds from mulato and pasilla chiles (Save mulato seeds to toast in step 3)
Toast mulato and Padilla chiles
Soak in warm water 20 mins until soft
Fry chipotle chiles in 3 tbsp lard until fully- place in same bowl of soaking chiles

Step 2 Frying medium heat
Warm 1/2 cup lard
Fry raisins until fluffy then place in a bow of warm water (save 1/3 cup of raisin water)
Fry tortillas, garlic, onion, peanuts (10 minutes, almonds (15 secs), animal cookings until golden color, plantain until soft

Step 3 Toast on medium heat (continuously stir)
Toast following ingredients for 10 to 15 secs- Cinnamon stick, anis seeds, cloves, cumin seeds, coriander seeds, mulato Chile seeds, then set to the side
Toast 1 tsp salt + sesame seeds (save some for garnish)

Step 4 blend spice
Blend toasted spices first- cinnamon , anis seeds, clove, coriander seeds, sesame seeds, mulato Chile seeds
Add raisin + water, plantain, animal cookies, peanuts, almonds, garlic, onion, chiles + chili water
Blend slowly and starting picking speed.
My blender was over worked! Try step 4 in batches of 3 to assure a smooth blend 😅
If using a different blender than a vitamix save 3/4 of a cup of raisin water and 1 cup of Chile water to assist your blend as needed. Not to worry the excess water will dissipate when cooking. Add 15 minutes to cook and stirring time. You got this corazón!

Step 5 cooking on medium heat mostly (Constantly stirring once mole paste touches the pot)
Add 1/2 cup of lard to pot allow to warm up and then add your mole paste
Cook 15 minutes while constantly to avoid burning and even cooking
In a bowl of warm water add desired chocolate bars + piloncillo once dissolved add to mole pot
Cook another 10 to 15 minutes taste and adjust chocolate and piloncillo as needed
Once you achieve desired sweetness add salt adjust to taste and continue storing to complete 45 minutes of stirring
Last 5 to 10 minutes switch heat to low and continue stirring amoricito, don’t quit, you got this babe.
Once paste is cooked set in a bowl and allow to cool a few hours
Place in an air tight container or small freezer bag in portions
If kept clean will last in refrigerator 3+ months
Will last in freezer 6 months to a year if not more 😋
