The magic behind the pork lies in the marinade. Hernán Mole Poblano paste comes in a concentrated form which can be used to create a rich, authentic mole sauce, or a marinade. And having pre-made mole flavors is a fantastic time-saver. Suggested taco pairing: Grilled Mole-Marinated Pork with salsa, pickled jalapeño, cilantro, and dijon mayo.
