Turkey Mole
 NOTE:  We would be surprised to learn if Nanak's Restaurant in Santa Fe, NM,is still around, but if 
it is,ask for their Mole.  The foundation of this recipe is built on the ingredients they used.  We 
substituted some tomato puree, since we don't buy off-season tomatoes. Check out Emeril's 
recipe on Foodtv and see how much easier this one is! I used a boneless turkey breast (pre-roasted) for
this and was not happy with it -- too tough. Next time, will try turkey or chicken leftovers from 
soup and use the broth for the recipe.
