Serving Ideas : Serve this saucy dish over rice tossed with chopped green onions. You can also use cooked chicken. If you like your mole really hot, use a whole chipotle chile. This freezes well, do make a double batch and save half for later.

To toast nuts, spread them on a baking sheet and bake at 400 degrees for 5 minutes.
