"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Rhonda Hemstreet


4 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs (~12) omit if going veggie
Coarse salt
Freshly ground black pepper
1 (28-ounce) can diced tomatoes
1 medium onion, coarsely chopped
4 dried ancho chiles, stemmed
4 large chipotle chiles in adobo sauce, plus 1 tbsp adobo sauce (feel free to use whole can if you like spice)
1 cup sliced almonds, toasted (optional)
3 ounces bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped ~1/2 cup (or more to taste)
6 garlic cloves, smashed and peeled
3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
3/4 tbsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg

Season both sides of chicken thighs with salt and pepper and place in slow cooker. (or add veggies instead)
Place all remaining ingredients in a blender and blend on high until at a smooth consistency, ~ 1 to 2 minutes. Pour sauce into slow cooker and mix with chicken. Cook for 4 hours on high or 8 hours on low.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Mexican mole sauce is typically labour intensive and intimidating, but this recipe takes little effort thanks to the slow cooker.I prefer a veggie version, feel free to try different veggie combos like cauliflower and zucchini!
