Let me start by saying this is not an animal it is not pronounced like "mole" it is pronounced like "ole'" with an "m" in front.
This recipe is prepared for many special Mexican occasions. Whenever my mom would prepare mole' there was usually a house full of family, brothers, sister, nephews, nieces, aunts, uncles, cousins and a few friends. The mole is served with spanish rice, beans, tortillas and/or tostadas.
Usually mole' is prepared with chicken, but if I was lucky my mom prepared it with beef tongue.
As a special bonus the glass container that the Mole' comes in can be washed and used as a drinking glass.
I'm sure there is not a Mexican home that doesn't have there collection of Mole' drinking glasses.
