2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Make the onion salsa

  • Peel and finely chop enough onion to measure 1 cup [2 cups].
  • Zest and juice the lime, keeping the zest and juice separate (the juice will be divided between the salsa and the mole).
  • Strip the cilantro leaves from the stems; finely chop the leaves and stems, keeping them separate. Set aside the stems for the mole.
In a small bowl, stir together the onion, cilantro leaves, lime zest, and half the lime juice. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Let stand, stirring occasionally, while you prepare the rest of the meal.


Cook the chicken mole

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, add the chicken, mole base, Mexican chocolate chunks, cilantro stems, and 1 cup [2 cups] water and season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook, stirring once or twice, until the chicken is heated through, the chocolate melts, and the sauce thickens slightly, 4 to 5 minutes. Remove from the heat, stir in the remaining lime juice, and season to taste with salt and pepper.
While the mole cooks, heat the tortillas.


Warm the tortillas

On the stovetop directly over a flame, or in a dry medium frying pan over medium heat, warm the tortillas, turning once, until just pliable and warmed through, about 30 seconds per side. Transfer to a clean kitchen towel, cover, and keep warm.


Set out the tortillas, chicken mole, and onion salsa. Invite everyone to assemble their own tacos.
