 Pollo - Chicken

Mole Poblano

Spanish colonialism had been the imposing force for decades, yet through inter-marriage a new culture gradually emerged--the Mestizo.  In the city of Puebla, several convents were active in creating much of the traditional Mexican cooking, as we know it today.  One such convent was expecting a visit by a distinguished archbishop.  A nun decided to serve a sauce known by the Nahuatl Indians as "mulli".  However "mulli" is a potpourri of hot chiles.  Knowing the holy man was not accustomed to spicy dishes, she set to the task of adding ingredients that would counteract the chiles:  chile ancho, dorado bread, tomato, cloves, bitter chocolate, chile poblano, peanuts, sugar, almonds, chile guajillo, fried tortillas, chile chalaca, carrots and garlic.  This very combination makes a mole poblano a truly rich and complex sauce.  A succulent boiled chicken breast exalted from the past.  Served with rice and refried beans.
