Enchiladas de Mole

Here comes some real Mexican enchiladas with mole topped with a mix of crumbled cheese and sour cream. This dish has a bit of spiciness, sweetness and chocolate, which is what you find in mole. Mole poblano is the specific name of this sauce, a blend of several ingredients. It contains a combination of 4 popular Mexican chili peppers, nuts, Mexican chocolate and spices. This sauce is complicated to make by scratch and it is better store-bought.
