Price: $10.25 for the whole meal + drink
Purchased from: Taqueria El Grullense

Day #5 of Chocolate and Meat week led me to try a different kind of mole dish for dinner this evening. Earlier this week my chocolate/meat item I ate was enchiladas with a mole sauce. The sauce for these enchiladas was a different blend, a bit sweeter/less bitter, at another restaurant. (I need to find out whether this flavor that is slightly bitter is anchiote or not - just to satisfy my own curiousity.) Mole sauce ingredients, I've found out, can vary widely. Some contain banana, ground sesame seeds, cracker crumbs, and other interesting ingredients beyond tomato sauce, spices and cocoa.
