The Mole typically contains a mixture of chiles, nuts, seeds, and vegetables. They sometimes include unsweetened chocolate, tomatoes, raisins, avocado leaves, epazote and various spices may be used. Many including the most famous Mole Poblano or Poblano de guajolote, from Puebla, is said to be the first to contain chocolate. Being so well known, this may account for the mole being thought of as a chocolate sauce.
One of the stories as to how Mole was invented is that it accidentally created by a Dominican Nun who was preparing a guiso (cooked dish, stew) of pureed roasted chile, cinnamon, pepper, cilantro, sesame seeds and turkey broth and decided to add some chocolate, which, according to her, sent the dish through the roof with an indescribable flavour. We may never know if this is indeed true, but it makes a very good yarn!
It is perhaps more probable that the mole was developed over a long period dating back to pre-Hispanic times and then incorporating Spanish ingredients making it a truly multi cultural dish.
