Enjoy this classic recipe with a yummy twist.
Who can guess the origin of the title? If you are thinking it sounds similar to “sloppy joe” then you are right! We wanted to get a little creative with our favorite mole sauce and an American classic dish that continues to stick around, no pun intended! A messy, sometimes sticky, yet finger-licking-good sandwich with a Mexican twist. We know you are going to add this to your list of party dishes and family favorites.
A good hearty meal is always a great idea once the fall weather arrives. The recipe we are about to share is extremely unique but perfect for literally every season. It’s got a classic style with a Mexican Mole Sauce to give it a punch of extra flavor. Even reading the ingredients and directions will get your taste buds going!
The best part about this recipe is how creative yet simple it is. You will immediately be the genius in the room who came up with this idea to make a common childhood favorite but with a seriously delicious twist. You can take all the credit too, as long as you mention the secret ingredient- making it not so secret! Just kidding,
Mi Huerta’s Mole Poblano sauce not only has traditional Mexican ingredients but is made by hand and packaged to ensure all the flavors get released upon cooking. We don’t put the product in a can or as a chunky paste that could go bad. We make it fresh, full of zest and spices and a handful of all-natural ingredients then package it just as is. Sometimes, extra chemicals or mystery substances can be added to sauces to make the lifespan last longer. Our process is clean, honest and traditional. You won’t have to worry about any of that with Mi Huerta Products, we give you our word!
Anyway, let’s get to the best and most important part of the blog which is the RECIPE! YUM!
Mole Sloppy Joes
*1 Packet or 2 of Mi Huerta Mole Poblano (depending on how much you want to make)
*1 Cup Chicken stock
*1-2 Jalapeños (minced)
*Hamburger buns or brioche rolls
*1 Rotisserie chicken
*Chips of choice or pickles for a side (or both!)
The Mi Huerta Mole Poblano sauce is easy to prepare and will turn to its proper form once heated – you can follow directions per package.
Once you have your chicken stock ready, go ahead and chop up a whole onion. Next grab the minced jalapeños and add them to the chopped onion- throw the whole mix on the skillet and sauté them a bit. Stirring in the stock and Mi Huerta Mole as it all heats and cooks- mix the ingredients well. Let them sit for a bit to thicken and cook.
During that process you can pick and shred your cooked rotisserie chicken (you can buy a ready-made one from your local grocer, try HEB or Kroger and then it’s super easy to heat up and pick apart).
Once you have done all of the above steps- mix everything together to create a delicious chicken and mole mix. Keeping things on low heat at this point you can then grab your hamburger or brioche rolls and start adding the mix to them. If you are feeling even more creative, maybe try adding some butter to the buns and toasting them a bit by laying them on a grill or hot stove for a minute.
Add as much of the “sloppy joe” mix as you and your guests like! Grab the chips and pickles with some refreshing drinks and you have a great setup that will please everyone! Thanks for reading our blog and as always, ENJOY!
