5 vegetable boullion cubes
However many triangles of Abuelita Marqueta
Mexican chocolate cubes to suit your fancy
Pinch of cumin
Pinch of nutritional yeast
A couple sprigs of cilantro
Makes 6-8 servings.
Put the beans, water, mole, boullion cubes and chocolate in the crockpot (on high) and stir as thoroughly as possible. Peel and chop the onions in half and add the four pieces to the pot. Now either keep the crockpot on high or turn to low and let sit (3-4 hours on high, a lot longer on low).
One hour and 15 minutes before you serve, add the cumin and nutritional yeast. Fifteen minutes before serving, add the cilantro.
