Vegan Mole Poblano & Mole Pipian
A trip down south.
Pique your taste buds with a dollop of Mole Poblano, or a bit of Mole Pipán on your next dinner. The Mole Poblano is complex and chocolaty due to the cocoa nuts, and can be enjoyed with your favorite grilled meats and vegetables, or used as salsa or barbecue rub. The Pipián is earthier from the pepitas, sesame seeds and peanuts, and is delicious as a sauce for roasted meats and salsa for enchiladas, tacos, and quesadillas. Either way, we think it’s time for an enchilada party, no?
Mole Pipian: Pumpkin seed, sesame seed, sunflower oil, corn tortilla, serrano chile, jalapeno chile, onions, peanuts, cilantro, epazote, dried spinach, salt, other natural herbs and spices; Mole Poblano: 4 kinds of chilies, raisins, coco, nuts, "piloncillo", plantains, corn tortillas, whole wheat bread, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, and other natural herbs and spices
