Mole de olla, from What's Cooking, Mexico?
With this recipe for mole de olla, a traditional Mexican stew, Ben of What's Cooking, Mexico? teaches us a bit about the cultural context of the dish, even as he adapts it to what's in his American pantry (and an ingredient he forgot to buy at Whole Foods!). Ben grew up in a restaurant family, and I love learning more about authentic Mexican food and the recipes he learned from his parents. This pork-based stew includes two of my favorite summer vegetables, corn and chayote squash.
