We crafted this blend as a shortcut method for achieving a delicious homemade mole that's better than the jarred stuff but doesn't require hours in the kitchen. But it also stands up as a rub or a seasoning by itself.
Ancho, guajillo and other chiles form the base of this blend. We add sweet spices like cinnamon as well as a touch of cocoa, salt and masa harina. Our recipe uses chicken, but you can make the sauce alone and use it for enchiladas, chilaquiles or even tacos.
Hand-mixed from: Ancho chile, Guajillo chile, sugar, Pasilla chile, smoked paprika, cocoa powder, sesame seeds, sea salt, anise seed, masa harina (corn flour), cinnamon, allspice, garlic, black pepper and cloves.

Oaktown Spice Shop has been in the Adams Point neighborhood for nine years. They focus on sourcing the absolute best-tasting version of each individual spice, then grind the spices themselves, in their shop. This means the ground spices customers find at Oaktown are bursting with flavor and are far fresher than those found elsewhere.
