I love Chilaquiles, any kind, and I feel it’s great that they can be served for brunch, lunch, or dinner.
This time, I was thinking of preparing some chicken chilaquiles, then I opened my pantry and saw a bottle of Doña Maria® Mole, I imagined the rich flavor of mole sauce over the chilaquiles, so I got to try it!
The delicious flavor of Doña Maria® Mole brings me good memories of my childhood in Mexico. My grandmother used to prepare a delicious mole served with tasty rice and beans that we enjoyed while having fun with cousins at her house.
Now, I continue using mole Doña Maria® to prepare different dishes full of the typical flavor of mole. From chicken mole chilaquiles to enmoladas and chicken mole with nopalitos, even champurrado with mole, check the recipes here!
Doña Maria® Mole is easy to use and it really saves me time in preparing these dishes, I hope you enjoy my chicken mole chilaquiles recipe, check the video at the end of the recipe!
