Oaxacan Red Chile Mole Simmer Sauce

Not sure if this really counts as a blog-worthy post, but we made an easy Mexican fiesta thanks to Rick Bayless.

We used this http://www.fronterafiesta.com/store/seasoning-sauces/oaxacan-red-chile-mole-simmer-sauce/27-114.  Added 1.5 lb chicken breast cut into 4 large pieces, and otherwise followed the directions.  This was really pretty tasty.

Also made some rice using http://www.fronterafiesta.com/store/seasoning-sauces/roasted-tomato-rice-seasoning-sauce/27-148.  The recipe called for 1 c rice and 1 c water.  I ended up adding quite a bit more water to make it not crunchy, but it still ended up crunchy.  Next time probably use 1 3/4 or 2 c water.

Served with refried black beans, tortillas, and a bit of queso oaxaceno.  Yum.
