Traditional Guatemalan Mole

Mole Traditional Guatemalan Christmas Food

Guatemalan mole is very similar to mole poblano, which is a chocolate and chili based sauce (over simplification of the ingredients). One big difference is that mole poblano is a meal with chicken or turkey, while Guatemalan mole is a dessert of plantains ladled with chocolate sauce or mole for short. Bon appetite!

    I lived in Guatemala for two years as a Mormon missionary…. I spent 5 months in Solola….where mole is a very common meal, and I can assure that Guatemalan’s eat mole poblano…or just plain mole (the meal with chicken). I never had “Guatemalan Mole” as described here…but I’m sure it existed.
