Servings 4


  • 1 Jar Mole We used Dona Maria
  • 2 Large Chicken Breasts
  • 3 Large Tomatoes diced
  • 1 Large Onion diced
  • 5 Ounces Dark chocolate
  • Coconut oil
  • Corn Tortillas


  • Gather your ingredients together.
  • Boil chicken breasts until the meat is falling off the bone, about 40 minutes depending the size of the breasts.
  • Remove chicken and reserve the broth.
  • Once the chicken is cooled, using two forks, shred into pieces.
  • Take two cups of the chicken broth reserve and put into a deep sauce pan and add the mole.
  • As you heat up the mole it will dissolve into the broth, you can use a wooden spoon to aid the breakdown.
  • Add the chocolate to the mole and stir until melted.
  • While the mole is cooking, in a separate pan heat up the coconut oil.
  • Cook the onion and tomatoes in the oil for about 15 minutes, then add to the mole sauce.
  • Salt and pepper to taste.
  • Add the shredded chicken to the mole and turn down to a simmer.
  • The mole will thicken as you cook, adding more chicken broth to keep your desired texture.
  • Take a cup of the chicken broth and a 1/4 cup of mole sauce and heat in a small skillet on a low simmer.
  • Place one tortilla at a time in the sauce and cook the until soft, about 60 seconds.
  • Using tongs, gently remove each tortilla.
  • With a slotted spoon scoop some of the chicken, tomato and onions from the sauce and put it into the tortilla and roll it up.
  • Repeat, adding two or three enchiladas and top with more mole sauce. Serve with rice and beans.
