Reviews for Chicken Mole Casserole
"This was a quick and easy mole dish that, although was a bit spicy (as a mole should be) my two small kids wolfed down! The sweetness of the corn paired with the fluffy biscuits were just enough to calm down the fire of the mole sauce. Very very good!"
"Really enjoyed this; just the right amount of spice, sprinkled chopped cilantro and shredded cheese before serving. Served it with guacamole and salad. YUM!"
"This is delicious!! My husband really liked it, especially the spiciness. I made it exactly as written except I made homemade biscuits and added shredded Mexican cheese in with the biscuits. Yum!!!!"
