    Chocolate mole

    In this section we present recipes on a larger scale, either to be cooked for a party, or to be canned, frozen, or packaged for later use. 

    I’ve loved mole sauce since the first time I tried it, and the best I’ve ever tasted was in a cantina in Blaine, Washington, just across the border from Canada. My mom had taken me there for lunch and while it was a simple restaurant, the food was stellar.  I have tried for years to reproduce that sauce and with this combination, believe that I have hit the jackpot.  For my own most recent batch, I rendered the pork fat off of the rind of some double-smoked bacon, gaining particularly delicious results.

    Chocolate Mole Sauce
    The recipe I based this on claimed it was for 12 and at Mexican restaurants it's true that the dish usually has a great deal of sauce, but I prefer a slightly less wasteful plating, so for me, 1/4-1/2 cup per serving is plenty.

    Easy Three Bean Chili: A Cheap and Cheerful Party Favorite
    This chili is one of my most popular recipes. Not only is it the most often requested, but as a regular table item at parties 'back in the day', I can remember  regularly hearing people being told when brought as guests that "You absolutely have to try the chili…it's the best!"
