The recipe for the mole' meat sauce is posted on here " holy mole' meat pie " and I just love using Reynolds non stick foil!!! Great for "not cleaning up"..lol
You can get the Mexican tomato sauce at some markets, and of course if you have a Mexican store near you “ we do & makes life so much easier “ you can get it there, and of course you can get it on line at MexGrocer.com
And if you are using the Rotel’ tomatoes or plain tomato sauce remember to season it, with salt, pepper etc.
Try not to remove any of the burnt on pieces of the chorizo because that is where the flavor is.
