    Since going keto 3 years ago-I really missed mole. I had seen this recipe but was intimidated by all the ingredients. Iโ€™m so glad I tried it-it came out amazing & even my non-keto family loved it!!! Way better than the grocery pre-made stuff with nasty ingredients!!!!

    Hi Paola, I am from the Netherlands and I love your recipies. I have a question. Itโ€™s very hard to get some dried ancho chilis in Holland. I can order some dried ancho chili powder and dried broken ancho chili flakes. I am not familiar with anchos and not familiar with substituting dried chilis for powder, so maybe you can tell me what to buy, the powder or flakes, and the amount to use for substituting the dried anchos in your recipe. Keep on posting great recipies and stay healthy please. Beso y un ambrazo cordial

    Hi…..my question is couldn’t I just use the loose mole they sell in the Mexican market then add a few things for flavor? Or this way cuz of keto?

    Hi Paolo, the recipe looks super yummy, but at what point do you cook the chicken? The recipe says to brown the chicken on all sides, does it cook in the Mole while it simmers?

    You are a lifesaver! I will be attempting this recipe, I love mole so so much… my husband thinks I have a problem, but he just doesn’t understand my roots lol

    I can’t wait to try this recipe. Would this work as an enchilada sauce with your tortillas? I don’t think I would have been able to stay on keto without your tortilla recipe.

    • Paola says:

      Definitely! I make large batches, freeze and make enchiladas with it (I’m Mexican, couldn’t go through life without enchiladas de mole ๐Ÿ˜‚!) And awesome to hear the tortilla recipe is serving its purpose lol! xo Mary!

    Hello, I am wanting to experiment with making like a Mole Pulled Pork. I’m bored with the traditional pulled pork recipes. Do you think this sauce would hold up in a slow cooker for 8-10 hours with a pork butt?

    Hi! I don’t do much authentic Mexican but I have a couple of recipes that use chipotles in adobo so I always have little bags of 2 chilis with adobo sauce in the freezer. Could I sub this somehow for the chipotle powder? If so, how much?
    My nearest grocery store is 2 hours away, so while I’ll search for the dried ancho chilis, I’ve never seen chipotle powder available and I’d rather not order online unless I know I’ll like the recipe! I already have a ton of keto ingredients taking up cupboard space! thank you!

    • Paola says:

      Hi Lulu! Using chipotle in adobo for mole as it has a very different acidity levels etc, so you would probably have to change things as you go (I have never made mole with chipotle in adobo so I’m not sure how it would work out). It would potentially work, but you will likely have to adjust a bunch of other things as you go (so it depends how comfortable you are in the kitchen with building on flavors as you go). I hoped this helped :-S

    Thank you for posting this! I have been missing mole for many years between Keto and developing a peanut allergy in my 20s. Is it possible to substitute something for the peanuts? I know peanuts are a crucial ingredient for the flavor, but do you think sunflower seeds would work? Thanks!

    Hi Paola! What kind of red pepper do you use for this recipe? My local grocery store has so many peppers that are red. ๐Ÿ˜ซ Is it something sweet like a bell pepper? Or spicy like a chili pepper?

    Iโ€™m so excited to try this recipe out! My boyfriend and I are huge fans of your blog ๐Ÿ˜Š

    • Paola says:

      Hi Dakota! Just grab a nice and big red bell pepper ๐Ÿ˜‰ so happy to hear you and your bf are enjoying the recipes so much! Hope you love this one too xo!

    I want to thank you for this recipe! My husband is Mexican so I decided to give it a shot for our Valentines Day dinner this weekend. WOW!! My husband was SO IMPRESSED! Said it’s one of the best moles he’s EVER had! Could not believe he was eating keto ๐Ÿ™‚
