Pollo en Mole Oaxaqueño pan seared chicken breast, chayote, radish, marjoram garnish.
Gus’ mole recipe originates from Oaxaca and includes a delicious blend of chiles, spices, pepitas, raisins, Mexican chocolate and much more. He shares that the key to the best mole is starting with good quality chiles; his favorites are mulato, ancho/pasilla, guajillo and cascabel pods – all of which come dried and are reconstituted to create a deep, rich flavor. It takes at least two-days to prepare the mole to achieve the perfect taste and texture.
Gus makes this mole at family celebrations and get togethers, as well as his other favorite dishes including pozole verde, shrimp ceviche tostadas, and nopales (cactus leaves).
