Mole Pipian con Pollo at Tacos Morelos, Dish #69

Welcome to 100 Dishes to Eat Now, the tasty countdown leading up to our "Best of 2012" issue. Tune in every day (weekends, too!) for a new dish from the Fork in the Road team.

Mole pipian is a pre-Colombian sauce native to southern Mexico made from pumpkin seeds, garlic, and dried chiles. It has a greenish tint, a nutty mild flavor, and is like nothing you've eaten before--assuming you've never tried it before.

Really, the ancient sauce is everything, and the boiled chicken thrown in is more to reassure you this in an actual meal than to improve the flavor. Anyway, there's not much flavor left in the bird after boiling. Use the warm tortillas provided to scoop up the sauce, and throw in a piece of chicken or two as desired.
