The Guide to the Regional Moles of Mexico. Mole is not one dish—the term encompasses a range of flavors, textures, consistencies, and ingredients, a heterogeneous spectrum that unrolls like a table-covering treasure map.

The Guide to the Regional Moles of Mexico

The word “mole” comes from the Nahuatl “mulli,” meaning sauce or stew. Though the word is pre-Hispanic, the moles that we know today are the result of centuries of marrying and modifying regional ingredients and new and old techniques. Most start with a paste made from dried chilies, nuts, seeds, and spices, and are thickened with a starch—masa, tortillas, or bread. The results are eaten alone with tortillas or as a vehicle or sauce for proteins. The basic rubrics one can use to categorize moles overlap like Venn diagrams. Mole recipes change from state to state, region to region, household to household, and even down to each individual cook. Oaxaca, Puebla, and Tlaxcala all claim propriety of the original mole, but the true origins have been lost to history.
