El Mero Mole

El Mero Mole

Mole in the Nahuatl term "muli" means salsa or sauce. It is considered one of the most valuable gastronomic dishes from Mexico. It is a delicate combination of zesty peppers, tomatoes, onions, garlic and about 20 more earthy ingredients. The rich color and combination of chocolate, nuts, and spices are sure to entice and please many taste buds. This beautiful sauce can be enjoyed over chicken, rice, or vegetables.

Cooking Instructions

To reconstitute, simply heat over the stove top with some chicken stock or water. Serve with warm tortillas and enjoy.

Refrigerate after opening, good for up to 2 weeks (but it's not going to last that long). Unopened mole can be stored frozen up to 2 months.

A Little Story Behind the Creator of Cesar’s El Mero Mole

This beautiful sauce was born in the humble kitchen of Mexico city, Senora Lulu’s cooking journey started at the age of 8 years old under the apprenticeship of her grandmother Clarita Vazquez. When she was growing up as a young girl, Lourdes learned how her grandmother cooked in the small fonda( similar to a diner today). All of this experience would eventually help her when she married and came to Chicago.

Humble Beginnings

In 1991, Cesar’s Taco began its humble beginnings and with time the menu expanded to include the Mero Mole. Lourdes mole started to appear more frequently on specials and catering orders that eventually it became a permanent item on the menu. The mole has competed at local competitions and tradeshows. This mole is the result of 3 decades of dedication and true love to her family and business.
