There is a wonderful little hole in the wall, authentic Mexican restaurant in my hometown serving delicioso food. In addition to a wonderful mole poblano sauce with chocolate, they serve a mole ranchero sauce with ground peanuts. While I've never associated peanuts with Mexican cooking - this stuff is AMAZEBALLS. Lick every drop off your plate and ask for a helping on the side - kinda sauce. Like a spicy red chipotle sauce with peanuts. Before I shake the owner down and ask for the recipe, has anyone out there heard of a peanut based, red mole ranchero sauce and have a recipe for it?
