World Kitchen: Mexican Mole

Crepe in my fabulous Calphalon pan!

No not a little brown spot or the rodent.  Mole like Mow – lay.  Last weekend was time again for our monthly “tweet while you cook” World Kitchen event.  This month’s recipe was a Coloradito Oaxacan Mole.  This was so out of my realm of cooking experience that it was something to look forward to.
