    Molly53's Note:

    Mole (pronounced moh'-lay) is the generic name for several sauces ranging from the thick, nearly black mole negro to the fresh, bright green, herb-infused mole verde used in Mexican cuisine, as well as for dishes based on these sauces. Outside of Mexico, it often refers to a specific sauce which is known in Spanish by the more specific name mole poblano. This less-well-known, flavorful sauce is wonderful on chicken or pork and keeps in the fridge for up to 3 days or in freezer for 3 months. Cooking time approximate.
