This is a good version to make with ingredients you can keep on hand. Serve with a rotisserie chicken or your own cooked chicken to give it an entirely different flavor. Rice and/or tortillas plus salad greens, sliced avocado, and chopped tomatoes round out a simple but special meal.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • ¼ cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon dried cilantro
  • ⅓ tablespoon dried minced garlic
  • 1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed tomato soup
  • 1 (4 ounce) can diced green chile peppers

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Heat the oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat, and cook the onion until tender. Mix in cocoa powder, cumin, cilantro, and garlic. Stir in the tomato soup and green chile peppers. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 10 minutes. Transfer to a gravy boat or pour directly over food to serve.

  1. I am rating this because I used it for a base recipe but added a lot of my own touch. I used 2 oz. of actual dark chocolate because that is what authentic mole sauce uses. I used a lot less tomato sauce (instead of soup) because it tasted too much like doctored tomato soup. - Read more ...
  2. The easiest mole sauce and quite yummy! I made it according to the recipe for the first time - next time I'll double the chocolate for a little bit richer flavor. It was terrific over beef & cheese enchiladas!
  3. This truly is a wonderful dish -- rich, earthy, flavorful and low in fat and cholesterol. I've made it many times, but changed it quite significantly. I find the recipe workes best when I do the following -- REPLACE the vegetable oil with olive (healthier), the canned soup with 28 oz crushed tomatoes, the canned - Read more ...
  4. Loved this recipe! It's quick easy and uses common ingredients. I didn't have any green chiles so subbed some jalapeno peppers... not too many. It added a little zip without being excessively hot.
  5. This was the first time I've ever tried anything like this. I followed a few suggestions made in the reviews i.e. instead of tomato soup I used two cans of Mexican stewed tomatoes and added salt. My kids thought "chocolate sauce" on chicken was crazy until they tasted it. This was awesome and will come - Read more ...
  6. We loved it! Used fresh cilantro and garlic and closer to 1/2 cup of onion. Made the sauce a day ahead and mixed in the roasted chicken before serving over rice and the flavors really melded well. Couldn't get easier - thanks for the post!
  7. This was really good. We like it a little more spicey so I added a little bit of finely chopped jalapeno. I shredded cooked chicken and simmered it in the sauce for a bout 10 minutes. Also to make it a little thinnner you could add some chicken or beef stock.
  8. I had serious doubts about this one--it seemed too easy. Very good though. I have had better mole I guess but when you consider the work involved this is probably the only one I'll make again--easy and good.
  9. WOW! I thought this looked too easy (it is) and therefore could not possibly be that good. This recipe is fantastic it works so well! I added a little cayenne pepper to spice it up and tossed the prepared sauce in to a crock pot with some shredded chicken. Amazing with tortillas!
