Inspired by the flavors of Zacatecas, Mexico, this rich sauce is uniquely crafted by blending the aromatic and hearty flavors of the chile Negro with the earthy blend of roasted nuts, warm cinnamon and the rich sweetness of cacao which are then elevated by the sophisticated tart notes of hibiscus flower. Its texture and sweet and savory flavors are reminiscent of a traditional mole but the ingredients make it versatile enough to use as a braising sauce, marinade or simmer and pour over your favorite ingredient.
Simple Preparation: Salt and pepper your favorite protein (we recommend chicken or flank steak), and roast or grill to desired doneness. Meanwhile bring sauce and 3/4 cup of water or broth to a simmer, and cook till slightly thickened, 5-10 minutes. Pour over your prepared protein and garnish with queso fresco, cilantro, and lime before serving.
