My Mom’s Mole Info
Cesario Ruiz created My Mom’s Mole to focus on sustaining traditional Mexican cuisine using responsibly sourced ingredients. He launched it in 2013 and now distributes it to specialty grocery stores throughout the Bay Area.
The first versions of mole (pronounced MOH-leh) were based on purées of dried chiles and spices ground in a stone mortar often with seeds and nuts. As new spices were brought to the Americas, moles became more elaborate and required more complex preparation. Generally, today’s moles contain ground chiles, nuts, herbs and spices.
