Mole Negro vs. Mole Poblano

From: (alfred...)

Well said. As a matter of fact, mole poblano is the origin of all moles, and Red mole the king of the Oaxacan moles. Mole is pork or chicken, not beef. But many mole dishes use shredded beef, mainly enchiladas de mole, possibly, or ROMERITOS, a traditional Christmas dish in central Mexico using oaxacan red mole.
Regardless of the family recipient, most families in Puebla or in Oaxaca have a recipe they call "the original".
There are 7 kind or types of moles recognized in Oaxaca, Mexico plus the Mole Poblano. Good luck with the recipie you use in the 8 mexican moles! There will be an eternal argument as to originality and honors of better one. Settle it, and I recommend you develop yours, staying true to ingredients, but claiming best award to taste. Always. Have fun and Enjoy all.
