    Cooking Oaxacan mole negro from scratch was one of the best food and cultural experiences I’ve ever had. On top of that, we didn’t really know what we were going to do when we set off in the morning… but things worked out for the best. Thank you to Javier and his family for inviting us into their home to cook amazing Oaxacan food!
    So in the morning the plan was
    Rent a van for the day
    Drive to a village
    Find a market
    Ask a nice Grandmother or Aunty to cook us some authentic Oaxacan mole negro
    Now, mole negro is one of the most complex and mysterious of all the Oaxacan Mexican food dishes. There’s such a huge mix of random ingredients in the dish, and no one knows for sure how it was invented or how it came about - there are only legends.
    After renting a van for the day, our driver Javier came to pick us up and we started talking with him to see if he knew anyone that would make us Oaxacan mole negro from scratch. He called his Mom, and she agreed!
    We picked up Mom in a place called Tlacolula de Matamoros, and we went straight to the market to buy all the ingredients for mole negro. Tlacolula de Matamoros is a predominantly Zapotec town, an Indigenous pre-Columbian civilization from the Valley of Oaxaca
    We got back to the house and started preparing all the ingredients. Let me tell you, mole negro has to be one of the most complex and mysterious of all Mexican food. It includes so many random and seemingly odd ingredients. It was a lot of fun to learn how to make it.
    The end result of the Oaxacan mole negro, was supreme. The sauce was so rich, chocolatey, and you could taste all the random ingredients in it - the nuts and dried fruit. It’s deliciously complex.
    Mole was amazing, and having the chance to hang out in a traditional Oaxacan village to cook was priceless.

      Happy that you showed such a beautiful side what most of Mexican people are like. I’m so proud to have that beautiful Mexican blood! That mole looked amazing, it made my mouth water 😋

    2. OneOranges

      Love how the lady is telling her son he should’ve told her yesterday so she could’ve bought everything. Poor guy was like I didn’t know 🤣

      Those peppercorns are actually allspice. In Mexico they call them pimientas gordas, I think. In Spain we call it pimienta de Jamaica and it is an extremely uncommon spice.

      I love Mexico

      Bro be hella high eating

    12. Danny Ruiz

      Although it may take at least a day to make Mole. Once it's done, depending on how much you make, it will last a few years. I use it more as a base for all my red chili sauce.

    13. Justin Wiens

      mark, ur one of the very few people on the planet, ive crossed paths with, that posses the same last name... outside of my immediate family of course lol

    14. Anthony Garcia

      Mole, menudo, tamales, tacos, posole, agua de horchata, de tamarindo, champurrado, etc. Mexican food and culture is the best. Thank you lord

    15. Zarcon2008

      It's Mole not chocolate stew, with thirty ingredients why would you call it chocolate stew. it doesn't tastes like chocolate... makes for goods clicks I guess.

      In Cozumel, my Mayan taxi driver took us to his mom's house. She killed a chicken and made a great lunch. He drove us around all week. When we left at the airport, he was sad. He showed us so much that would otherwise not be seen. Where the locals live. A beautiful experience when you get away from the tourists. This is why I dont take cruises as you never get an authentic experience.

      With some home made corn tortillas I’m in heaven!!!

    41. CHOW R

      Se ve muy rico. Pero no parece Mole Negro más bien parece Mole Poblano. El Mole Negro es más obscuro y con un sabor ahumado y ligeramente con sabor quemado.

    42. thebluebloom

      Daaamn so envious! Omg this is so amazing! Thank you so much for showing casing and being very respectful. Damn homemade mole and handmade tortillas!

    43. rebecca Cobarrubias

      Omg! now I want some mole it looks so darned good i love mole!...ok now you killed it with the grasshoppers i just can't handle any insect dead or especially alive! But yes to the mole! I live in East los Angeles where we have the famous "El Mercadito" mexican market place where people have little booths making mexican food from scratch from all different regions of Mexico....just because its all mexican food, different regions make the same food prepared differently with different ingredients... but its all so good! And its basically the same depending on your own taste buds!....this Mole looks so 😋 yummy!

    44. Yemovana BXD


    45. Sneaky Castro

      I thought she was in a pool of mole in the thumbnail 🤣

    46. alfonso ramirez

      You actually missed the experience of going to the Molino (Mill) you should have gone! I remember back in 90's when i was 6 and stayed with my aunt and uncle in Oaxaca as my parents had migrated my aunt for a living Sold tortillas every day at the Mercado, i remember she would wake up every day at 3am because she needed to prepare the Nixtamal and early in the morning before dawn she would wake us up my cousins and my brother and send us with the Nixtamal to the Molino while she prepared her Comal and wood to set the fire, we would go to the Molino and meanwhile we would entertain ourselves listening to the birds sing as the sun was starting to rise so we would make bird traps by getting some Nixtamal from the buckets my aunt had given us and to a stick we would attach a string put a basket on top of it the Nixtamal under the basket we would go hide and watch hoping to catch a bird or pigeon we would do this until all the Nixtamal was grinded and then head back home get ready for school my aunt would make us some Chocolate (hot coco) and a fresh hand made tortilla making us a taco by solely adding Salt to the tortilla. Such a beautiful memory 😢 tears rolling as i was writing this. I miss my aunt hopefully soon i'll be able see her

    47. Yessenia Pozuelos

      The herb is chipilin we use it in Guatemala cooking a lot. My mom has a lot growing in her home in LA lol she uses to make pupusas or chuchitos and in chicken soup.

    55. mishap00

      Maybe not so mysterious? The Spanish use nuts in sauces, and chocolate has been used in savory food in Mexico for millenia.
