Did You Know?
Mole sauce is a rich, spicy and slightly sweet Mexican sauce. The word "mole" (MOH lay) comes from the Aztec word "molli," meaning concoction or sauce. Traditionally, it's a very complex tomato-based sauce with dozens of ingredients that varies by region. Popular versions include chiles, chocolate and nuts.
For a deeper more complex flavor use stout beer in place of the lager.
