But all of these powders and pastes were ready to
roll — add a dash of oil and chicken broth, and you’ve got a delicious

Mole itself is evidence that the Indian culture was never defeated.
Though the invention of mole poblano is usually attributed to a Spanish nun,
the word itself comes from the Náhuatl Indian word molli,
meaning “concoction” or “sauce.” And most food scholars agree that some
form of the sauce dates back to pre-Columbian times.

was asked to create a special dish for a visiting archbishop.
