Dona Chonita Mole Brown 350g 

This is the most sophisticated and elaborate sauce in Mexican cuisine. It is made with chillies, seeds, spices, and more notably, chocolate.

Although it is a sauce used in prehispanic feasts, it became popular during the Spanish colonial period. One legend says that a nun created this version when asked to cook for the Viceroy of New Spain who immediately fell in love with it. Another legend says that the cook in charge to prepare a feast for the Viceroy at the convent in Puebla was so nervous, he tripped and by accident added plenty of ingredients to the cooking turkey. The result was the mole poblano, one of Mexico's most iconic dishes.
