With this recipe we have a very different version of the mole because the peanut mole is full of soft and subtle flavors, where the hotness is minimal. A curious fact about this mole is that it is very thick, in fact it is the thickest of the moles and when you have some chicken pieces served on the table... that’s the moment in which it has to be used.
The reason why this mole is so different is to keep the peanut’s delicate flavor when it is mixed with other ingredients. Although it also keeps particularities of the mole because its flavor is elaborated and spices are used to perfume it. Prepare it and delight yourself with a range of different flavors.
