Because who says January detox can't involve chocolate?! After a geologic era in graduate school, I am slowly cleaning out the dark corners of my pantry in preparation for a move and uncovered a jar of mole paste I inherited from someone else who skipped town without cracking it open. I was inspired by many helpful cooks on Chowhound who offered suggestions for reviving mole sauce from a jar. My household is largely veggie so an updating of spinach enchiladas seemed in order. Hope you enjoy!
Disclaimer: Though I am fully committed to expanding the role of chocolate in my diet, I am a mole novice. The internet seems to think that Dona Maria, while widely available, is barely a substitute for the real thing. The good news is that if you start with Dona Maria and jazz it up with ingredients already in your kitchen, the results can be a spicy, nutty, chocolate-deepened experience. If you've got better mole available to you, fantastic. If you've got your abuela's recipe, I'd love to see it in the comments below! —yeast lady
