Forty contestants competed in the Universidad Popular 6th Annual “Feria del Mole” by serving their secret mole recipe to 1,500 attendees. The Feria was held Saturday, Sept. 24, 2011 at the Arturo Velasquez Westside Technical School, 28th St. & Western Ave. in Little Village. Visitors attending the fest had an opportunity to taste test homemade mole from different regions of Mexico and vote for their favorite.
[Mole is a Mexican sauce and comes in various flavors and ingredients, with chili peppers as the common factor. The classic mole version is the variety called mole poblano, which is a dark red or brown sauce served over chicken or meat.]
