Mole (Mo-lay) Sauce

This is my version of mole sauce. It can hold its own against the mole at our great local Mexican restaurant. I usually double this recipe, but that's just me. The original recipe calls for 5 TBSP(yes, 5)of chili powder. I cut it in half, but you can take it from there. And don't judge the taste until you add the chocolate. It's just not done until you finish this step! Serve it over good chicken, over enchiladas,or burritos. I think it is good with lots of things. I served it the other night over leftovers from canarygirl's Chicken Verde, and it was superb!(Her recipe stands on its own as a great dish, I just enhanced my leftovers! Thanks, canarygirl!)
