We call for shredded turkey in this homemade Mexican enchilada recipe, but feel free to use chicken, pork, or beef if you have that left over.

Quick Mole Sauce


Instructions Checklist
  • Prepare Quick Mole Sauce: In a large saucepan cook onion, garlic, and salt in 1 Tbsp. hot oil over medium-high heat 3 minutes. Stir in chile peppers, cocoa powder, and cinnamon; cook 30 seconds. Add broth, almond butter, raisins, and zest. Bring to boiling, whisking until nearly smooth. Reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, 10 minutes or until slightly thickened and reduced to 4 cups, stirring occasionally. Let cool slightly. In a blender, process (in batches, if necessary) until smooth.

  • Prepare Enchiladas: Preheat oven to 350º F. In a large bowl combine turkey, 1/2 cup Quick Mole Sauce, and 1 1/2 cups queso fresco; set aside.

  • In a large skillet heat 1/3 cup oil over medium-high heat. Fry tortillas in oil until softened and lightly browned (about 30 seconds each); drain on paper towels. Pour 1 cup mole into a pie plate. Pour another 1 cup mole into a 13 x 9-inch baking pan. Dip one tortilla in mole in pie plate to coat, fill with 1/3 cup turkey mixture, and roll up. Place seam side down in baking pan. Repeat with remaining tortillas.

  • Pour remaining mole over top. Cover pan with foil. Bake 25 minutes; remove foil. Bake 5 to 10 minutes more. Let stand 10 minutes before serving. Sprinkle with remaining queso fresco, the pepitas, red onion, and cilantro.
