  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 cup diced white onion
  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
  • (optional) 1 jalapeño, cored and diced
  • 1/4 cup chili powder*
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 1/2 cups vegetable stock
  • 2 tablespoons smooth almond butter (or your preferred nut or seed butter)
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
How to cook:
  1. Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion and sauté for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until soft and translucent. Add garlic and jalapeño (if using) and sauté for 1-2 more minutes, stirring occasionally, until fragrant. Add chili powder, flour, cinnamon, cumin, and oregano, and stir until everything is evenly mixed. Continue sautéing for 1 more minute, stirring occasionally.
  2. Remove pan from heat. Add vegetable stock, and stir until combined.
  3. Use an immersion blender to puree the mixture until smooth. Or transfer it in two small batches to a traditional blender, and purée until smooth, being very careful (**see note below) since warm liquids expand when they are blended.
  4. Return the saucepan to medium-high heat. Add almond butter, tomato paste, cocoa powder and sea salt, and whisk until combined. Continue cooking until the mixture reaches a simmer and the sauce as thickened.
  5. Reduce heat to medium-low. Taste, and season the sauce with more salt if needed.

Holy Mole Pepper Recipe

Holy Mole Pepper Recipe
Provided by: Just Mexican Food
Total time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 5 minutes
Prep time: 5 minutes
Yields: 8 servings
Cuisine: Mexican
Number of ingredients: 10
  • 5 Dried Holy Mole Peppers
  • 2 oz of dark chocolate
  • 1 garlic clove (mashed)
  • black sesame seeds
  • 1/4 white onion chopped
  • 1 tsp of olive oil
  • 1 tsp of paprika
  • 1 tsp of cayenne pepper powder
  • 1 cup of chicken broth
  • Some people prefer to use water instead of chicken broth since some chicken broth can be salty! Add a little at a time.
How to cook:
  1. The first step in this holy mole pepper recipe is to prepare the peppers. This means, you will need to place the peppers in water if you have purchased them dry. They will need to rehydrate first. However, if the peppers are fresh, pit the peppers and remove the seeds.
  2. Cut the peppers into small sections and add into the blender. Don't blend yet though as you need the rest of the ingredients.
  3. Now, add the rest of the ingredients in the blender, not including the black sesame seeds as these are for decoration. Blend until the consistency is similar to a thick paste. It should be smooth and have an intense scent.
  4. Although the peppers do not need to be cooked, simmering the paste does bring out the intensity of the flavors better. On a medium to high temperature, simmer the paste in a pot. Make sure to keep on stirring and watching as the paste simmers. This step should only take 5-10 minutes. Turn the stove off.
  5. Serve the holy mole pepper sauce in small containers or cups. In these cups, you can add the toppings as garnish. I like to add black sesame seeds because the texture adds something extra! However, you can add anything you like including black beans, chocolate shavings, and cilantro!
  6. Most of the time, when I make this holy mole pepper recipe I am left with a lot of leftovers! Since this is the case, I like to store the holy mole pepper sauce for as long as I can. Surprisingly, with refrigeration and technology, holy mole pepper sauces can last a long time!
  7. That being said, you should never leave your pepper sauce outside of the fridge as it does need air tight seal protection. For even more long term use, I recommend placing the sauce into containers that you can freeze. When you freeze this sauce, all you need to do is add heat, like the stovetop, to let it simmer again.
  8. You can also use this holy mole pepper recipe is smaller and larger quantities with a few changes. I like to half recipes if I do not need too much.
