Chicken Mole Tacos

Chicken Mole Tacos
Tacos are one of the greatest foods around and what better way to enjoy tacos than with chicken in a tasty mole sauce? These chicken mole tacos are super easy to make! It's pretty much just cooked chicken mixed with mole sauce and thrown into warmed tortillas along with your favourite taco fillings. You can use leftover chicken that is either sliced or shredded; rotisserie chicken is easy but you can poach, roast, or grill some as needed. I like simple toppings for my tacos and pungent fresh onions, a bit of cheese, cilantro and a hit of lime juice are perfect!

Honest, good, with a bit of spice ingredients...yum! The only thing I'd done is add a tiny dollop of non-fat sour cream, along with an extra drizzle of fresh lime juice. Thanks for the idea :)

I hear you (sadly) on the lack of street food scene. Here in Chicago are laws are such that all the food has to be prepared in a commercial kitchen, it can't be made in the truck, so it really limits what gets sold.

Your tacos look amazing though. I do love a good mole sauce.

Sarah Rebekah said...

Your pictures are so colorful and vivid, I love them! Food looks wonderful too. You're Spanish dishes have now given me a hankering for some...

Cassie said...

I have never had mole sauce, I am always afraid to try it. We don't really have street food here (Kansas City) either... except if you count run-of-the-mill hot dog stands.

Hi Kevin, there may just be an underground street food movement on the horizon. In yesterdays TO Star an article re this very topic. Their site is: torontoundergroundmarket.tumblr.com

It was an interesting read -- let us know what you think

krissy said...

Could you possibly point me in the direction of where to find soft corn tortillas in Toronto? I'd be so grateful!

Kevin said...

Maria-TO: I have been following the Toronto Underground Gourmet Market concept with enthusiasm. I really hope that something amazing will come out of it.

krissy: The best place to get corn tortillas in Toronto is in the Kensington market. I have also seen frozen ones in the Saint Lawrence Market and Metro has some in their Selections brand.

krissy said...

Thank you so much!

Josie said...

My husband (ok and me) would absolutely devour these!

Mother Rimmy said...

I love mole sauce, but have yet to give it a try myself. I'll have to try your mole recipe. The color and spices are mouthwatering.

Kevin, I too am very jealous hearing about the very active street food scenes in other cities. We don't have any of that either. But I do think that between your chicken mole tacos and my tandoori chicken tacos, we'd be pretty successful should we start our own taco truck together!
