Wow, sounds interesting. I've heard of mole, but I'm gonna reveal my mole ignorance and ask how you use/serve it - as a topping, a side dish on it's own, something else?

Side dish. I am sure you can add it as a topping to say, a steak.

I totally wasn't paying attention and envisioned a squash shaped mole...

I love mole - I'll definitely be trying this. Sounds great, Jenn! Thanks for sharing.
