What is mole?

The answer varies, but the first versions of mole (pronounced MOH-leh) were based on purées of dried chiles and spices ground in a stone mortar often with seeds and nuts.  As new spices were brought to the Americas, moles became more elaborate and required more complex preparation. Generally, today's moles contain ground chiles, nuts, herbs and spices.

The story of the origin of mole is steeped in folklore from the 16th and 17th centuries.

The brand

The mole is in powder form and is refrigerated giving it added versatility.  Simply add as a spice for a marinade or simmer with your favorite stock to make mole sauce.  It is traditional and authentic yet unique making it easy to incorporate into a variety of dishes.

The mole is produced and distributed from the El Pajaro CDC Commercial Kitchen Incubator in Watsonville, California. It can be found in markets in Santa Cruz, San Mateo, Santa Clara, and Alameda counties.
