Oaxacan Chicken Mole Rojo Dinner Kit for 2

Guelaguetza’s mole rojo is delicate and slightly spicier than its black counterpart, and will transport you to the hillsides of Oaxaca. Made with a blend of chiles, nuts, seeds, spices, and Oaxacan chocolate and unchanged for generations, this family-recipe mole is rich, bold, complex, full-bodied, well-balanced, umami-rich, and downright delicious! This pack includes mole rojo, chicken legs and thighs, Mexican white rice, and corn tortillas.

Ask anyone in Los Angeles where they go for an authentic taste of the Mexican state of Oaxaca, and there’s a very good chance that they’ll point you towards Guelaguetza. Founded by husband and wife Fernando Lopez and Maria Monterrubio in 1994, this low-key Mexican restaurant is renowned as LA’s ambassador to Oaxacan cuisine, largely thanks to its iconic moles. Guelaguetza is today run by Fernando and Maria’s children, Paulina, Fernando Jr., Elizabeth, and Bricia. They’re carrying on the tradition of honoring their family’s recipes, which over the years have been hailed by everyone from the LA Times’ Jonathan Gold (who named the restaurant one of LA’s 101 most essential) to the James Beard Foundation, which named it an American Classic.
