Traditional Mexican mole sauce is a heady mixture of chiles, spices, fruit and
unsweetened chocolate, often served with chicken or pork. This simplified version
has lots of flavor, just like the original, but with a fraction of the ingredients.
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tablespoon oil
pork tenderloin or boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces
Cook and stir onion and garlic in hot oil in large skillet on medium heat until
Increase heat to high. Add pork; cook and stir for 5 minutes or until pork is
golden brown on all sides.
Add 1/2 cup water, barbecue sauce, chocolate and crushed red pepper; mix well.
Bring to a boil; cover. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer 10 minutes or until pork
is cooked through, stirring occasionally.
Serve over rice.
