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

Wash produce before use


Make the cabbage-radish slaw

  • Thinly slice the radishes.
  • Coarsely chop the cilantro.

In a medium bowl, combine the cabbage, radishes, cilantro, Aleppo chile–lime vinaigrette base, and 1 to 2 teaspoons oil and toss to coat. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Let stand, stirring occasionally, while you prepare the rest of the meal.


Make the duck mole

  • Coarsely chop the chocolate.

In a medium [large] sauce pot over medium heat, combine the mole base and 1 cup [2 cups] water. Stir in the chocolate, increase the heat to medium-high, and cook, stirring or whisking often, until the chocolate has melted and the sauce is smooth, 3 to 4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. 

Add the duck confit, reduce the heat to low, and cook, stirring to break up the meat, until the duck is heated through, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper. While the duck mole is cooking, prepare the tortillas.


Warm the tortillas

  • Remove 6 [12] tortillas from the package; save the rest for another use.
  • Crumble the queso fresco if needed; set aside for garnish.

On the stovetop directly over a flame, or in a dry medium frying pan over medium heat, warm the 6 [12] 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, duck mole, cabbage-radish slaw, and queso fresco. Invite everyone to assemble their own tacos.
