1/2 c chopped red tomato
5 T organic raw Tahini Butter
1/4 cup organic raw cacao powder

PREPARATION: Remove chiles and dates from their soak water. Remove seeds from chiles; save soak water. Place chiles, 2 T chile soak water and remaining ingredients in a blender. Blend until smooth. Check for seasoning. If not sweet enough add some maple or agave syrup. If not salty enough add nama shoyu a few drops at a time or Sea Salt until tastes good to you. If mole sauce is too thick, thin it with more chile soak water.
