Get A Taste of Mole @ Mission Cultural Center's Mole To Die For Contest

Making mole right is a science, and when it's done to a T, it's a beautiful thing. The Mexican sauce (whose origins are claimed by Oaxaca, Puebla and Tlaxcala), usually concocted with nuts, seeds, chocolate, plantains, grapes, garlic, onions, and a bevy of chili peppers, spices and herbs gets a starring role at tonight's Mole To Die For contest at the Mission Cultural Center. At the contest's 6th year running, you'll get to taste dozens of different moles (they'll also offer small plates of chicken smothered in green mole) and vote for your favorite.
