Last night [livejournal.com profile] leahseraph and [livejournal.com profile] kaflurbaleen came over, and we made molé and fresh tortillas. Most tasty, and a good use of cast iron.

  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 4 roma tomatoes, finely chopped

  • 1 t oregano

  1. Brown onions and garlic in oil.
  2. Add all the other ingredients except cilantro.
