Chicken Mole Tacos
By Table Talk on October 08, 2012
One of the many things I miss about living in California is the Mexican food. Sure we have Mexican restaurants here in Richmond, but none that measure up to the ones I left behind, like Tony’s Jacal in Solana Beach. Around since 1946, they are a family business offering up home cooked specialties like Pulled Turkey Tacos, Chile Rellenos, and some of the best Chicken Mole I have ever had. –Their margaritas are pretty good too…
Tony’s is far far away from here, and the visits back to California don’t come often enough for me, so when I am craving Mexican, I do my best to recapture those flavors by cooking my favorites at home. Not the same, and I don’t have Solana Beach out my back door, but I do manage to come close, and Jeff”s margaritas are pretty killer.
Mole is made with a combination of chilies, spices, nuts, and chocolate; ingredients that are simmered together to produce a sauce that is rich, complex, and velvety smooth. Chicken and turkey are natural partners for mole sauce, and pretty amazing when shredded and wrapped up together in a warm tortilla.
