Trader Jose's Mole Rojo
Trader Jose's Mole Rojo is a new product at Trader Joe's. I followed the directions on the jar, but going light on the mole to broth ratio.
The result was nice, though my conservatism was too timid. I think that following the exact 1 cup mole to 2 cups broth will make this an excellent Trader Jose addition.
The 16 ounce jar costs $3.99 and is made in Mexico.
Sound good! However, I once tried their Mole Poblano version (I was having a serious mole craving and was being lazy since I was already at TJ's) and it was AWFUL!!! First, the Mole had the texture of pudding... then when I made the sauce, it was OVERPOWERED by an orange peel flavor that made it bitter and muddy... I was so upset, I tossed the jar right then and there in the trash... The next day, I did what I should have done, just picked up the Dona Maria at Ralphs/Kroger... SO much better and Dona Maria is also cheaper...
