Delicious Chilli Mole Recipe

Mole (pronounced 'mo-lay') is THE quintessential chilli sauce native to Mexico. It literally means ’everyday sauce' - and is ladled over nachos, tacos, enchiladas, burritos or served on rice. 

The Boxxfresh Chilli Mole skips out the 'Con Carne’ (‘with meat’) and goes back to its true origins with tomatoes, black beans, dark chocolate, chillies and cinnamon spices to create the deep soulful flavours that will have you reaching for seconds!
