Yellow Mole

Recipe Reviews |Rate this Recipe| 7 Saves

Yellow mole is actually not yellow, but somewhere between orange and brick red, like this version. The common ingredient in yellow moles is guajillo chiles and this recipe stays traditional in that sense. This is served with stew meat which creates a hearty, delicious meal.
