I have been using this same mole paste since the 1960s. What happened? Tonight I made it as I usually do and it's different? Not the perfect balance of sweet and hot and not even the same consistency. We were very disappointed. Anyone else notice the change?

PEOPLE ARE DUMB!! This is a PASTE!! READ BEFORE BUYING!! Add about a cup or two of broth from cooking your chicken to blender, also add contents of jar, and blend.. You can add more broth depending on how you like mole.. Do lil by lil to your liking.. FRIENDLY TIP. You can get all fancy and add fresh onion, a few more dried chiles, sesame seeds (peeled) to blender. Lots of ideas on internet ONE THING I ALWAYS ADD ARE A HANDFUL OF SALTINES 6-7, WHY? I'm not even sure but always saw my mom and Tia's do it when I was young so I do the same as well, lol yes content is rock hard and there is oil on top.. I usually let hot water run on top of jar BEFORE opening while I'm shredding chicken like 10 minutes or so and found it a bit easier to dig up the paste.. So disregard negative reviews, Doña Maria Mole is PERFECT!!!

I don't have anything bad to say. About the Mole. Taste good, east to use, right out of the box. Goes a long way. One box will make 12 pieces of chicken. Of all the Dona Maria products. Mole is my favorite but far.

Nothing like Mole. Didn't like that you have to preheat first. Hard texture. Difficult to open jar, hard to get out of jar. I thought I was picking up Mole. My fault for not paying attention to label. The glass jar is what sold me. I'll never buy again. Had to throw away 12 pieces of chicken. Opted for frozen pizza instead. For dinner.

Delicious stuff. Anybody who wrote a negative review because they couldn't figure out how to open a jar, or don't know that substances will separate according to their density when sitting on a shelf, are complete morons. Don't like how oil and a chalky, solid mix will separate? Then mix it up and put it in water or broth like you're supposed to! It's not the company's fault that you're too stupid to open a jar and don't understand the concept of mixing things together with a fork.

I'm learning how to use Dona Maria moles as a base sauce

It's a shame that all the reviews are from novices (like me) who don't know what they're buying & can't open a jar effectively. they didn't get past the basics.. (sigh). One thing I look for is how to use each of the varieties as a base mole as a _starter_; warm in a pan with a bit of stock or water, and to find what else to add to it to develop more flavor levels in the what I finally serve. For the red mole: I'll add extra unsweetned cocoa powder, and some additional toasted ground chiles, plus grated partial tab of Ibarra chocolate. `turns out pretty good. :) `usually I wind up with far more sauce than the jar/glass starts with; and have learned to enjoy this more & more.. Hoping to learn as i "earn" my set of glasses.. Please don't change that packaging to cheap plastic! :)

Villegas - 2 years ago, Verified purchaser
The oil is normal, you have to be very careful when opening it, I do it with a bottle opener. Then I put the oil in the blender, stick a knife through the edges all around and drop directly into the blender, and add boiling water and, all the spices you need to complete it. Unless you want it simple like that.

I made the pressure cooker mole chicken and it was great. Yes, the mole comes out with the liquid on the top and the hard mole underneath. Open the jar CAREFULLY. I followed the recipe exactly as was written and it was absolutely perfect. I stirred in a little brown sugar at the end and WOW..it was excellent. Since only 2 of us, I have enough for tacos, burritos bowls, enchiladas and more. Thank you, I will buy again.

First time user and I was dumb struck with the fact that underneath the pool of oil on top, the adobo was hard as a rock and I couldn't even get any out. I thought for sure this had to be a mistake. Yuck:/ ended up leaving it out of my recipe all together and won't buy this again.

I've bought your dona maria adobo sauce twice now and both times I couldn't get the lid off and then it made a mess trying to get the lid off. Also the first time I purchased this item and refrigerated it, it became hard. Please make your kids much easier to get off especially without making a big mess. Then I would buy this product again

Too salty and Bland! As someone who makes Mole frequently I was not a fan of the flavor. It has a chalky taste, and the flavor is nowhere near homemade mole. I can tell that some spices were added but the over all flavor is unpalatable. I chose this because I was running behind schedule and someone recommended this to me. When I fed this to my family I got roasted hella hard… Needless to say this is the last time I’m taking short cuts
