Make and Take your own Mole

Chef Director Lexi is an ardent fan of Mexican food, whether she’s cooking it, eating it, or reading books about it.  For this class, Lexi is going to show you how to make your own mole sauce!

Mole is a complex Mexican sauce with origins in pre-Hispanic times.  The term ‘mole’ encompasses a wide variety of sauces, but usually a mole will include some of the following ingredients: fruits, chili peppers, seeds, nuts, spices, and sometimes chocolate.  Pipian mole sauce is a Mexican pumpkin seed sauce.
