Socorro “Soco” Huerta, The Mexican Goddess of Mole. Until recently, I was only able to get Soco’s mole on Christmas and other major holidays. Now that she’s working at La Batalla with her husband Santiago full time, I can get it every day of the week!

A Torta Ahogada (“Drowned Sandwich”) a specialty sandwich from the Mexican state of Guadalajara. This sandwich, ordered with chicken or pork and filled with beans, cheese and avocado, is drowned in a Red Mole hot chile sauce made with “chile de árbol” chilies, vinegar, garlic and oregano.
The specialty of the day, made just for Cinco de Mayo — black bean Tamales with Chicken Mole Poblano.
Tamale, opened, with mole on top.
This is a deep-fried Chicharron (pork skin).
