Kraft Kitchens Tips

Food Facts
Heating the peanuts and spices not only toasts the nuts but also releases the fragrant aromas of the seasonings.
Cooking Know-How
Because of the complexity of mole sauce, it should be kept on a low flame after it has come to a boil and stirred constantly. Otherwise, the sauce can burn and turn bitter.
Can't find prepared red mole sauce? Substitute 2 Tbsp. each mole paste and tomato paste mixed with 1/2 cup water for the mole sauce.
