Chili con Pollo y Molé Verdé
Why I Love This Recipe
Translation (probably inaccurate): Green Mole Chicken Chili. Or, more simply, Muy Yum-O! You can sub fresh for canned, or canned for fresh, of any ingredients. I like to stew a whole chicken, then make different stuff out of it. The local Sunflower Market closed (boo!) here and had a 50% off sale, so I stocked up on some sauces & condiments. And sushi. Yeah- I know- one shouldn't eat sushi that's half off, but I live on the EDGE, baby.
Ingredients You'll Need
1 Onion, chopped
1/2 jar Doña Maria Molé Verdé
1/2 chicken, cooked (I stew in the Crockpot in my fave MX spices)
4c Chicken stock (made from bones of Crockpot chicken)
1/2 14.5oz can Tomatoes
2 14.5oz cans Navy beans
Salt & Black pepper
Cilantro, chopped or dried
Heat oil in large, heavy Dutch oven; sauté onion til translucent.
Lower heat; add molé sauce and stir to break up (this sauce sometimes separates in jar, leaving oil at top; don't fret, just pour it in).
Add chicken and stock, stirring to incorporate any chunks of molé.
Add tomatoes and beans, and season to taste w/salt & pepper.
Simmer over very low heat, stirring occasionally, 1hr+.
Garnish w/cilantro and serve! Olé!!!
