The Feria de los Moles, a popular Los Angeles festival highlighting the sauces called moles (pronounced “mohlehs”), was presented as a competition between Oaxaca and Puebla, the two Mexican states famous for these classic preparations.

Mole is a cooked sauce usually made from ground chilies (hot peppers) and enriched with ground nuts or seeds, or it can be a dish made with such a sauce.
