Fiesta Mole Sauce (see recipe below), made with Nielsen-Massey Pure Chocolate and Pure Almond Extracts, is surprisingly simple for home cooks of all skill levels, while wowing guests and gussying up your summer gathering.

How to make: Fiesta Mole Sauce
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 poblano chile, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 small onion, chopped
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 cup chicken stock
1 teaspoon Nielsen-Massey Pure Chocolate Extract
1 teaspoon Nielsen-Massey Pure Almond Extract
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon cloves
2 tablespoons raisins
1 cup crushed tomatoes
- Heat the oil in a medium-sized frying pan and add the chile, garlic and onion.
- Saute until the mixture is fragrant and the onion is translucent.
- Cool slightly and add to a blender. Blend until smooth.
- Return the mixture to the pan and add the remaining ingredients and cook, stirring occasionally 30 minutes.
Use the mixture to top grilled or baked chicken or turkey breast and of course in tacos! Avocado pairs well with Fiesta Mole Sauce, taking your dish from satisfying to off-the-charts. Instead of avocado slices, try Orange-Infused Avocado Crema, with Nielsen-Massey Pure Orange Extract. Made from the finest-quality oranges, Pure Orange Extract adds unique flavor to everything from jams & fruit pies to salad dressings and desserts. In just a few minutes you can turn a handful of ingredients into a taco addition that will put guacamole to shame.
