These Mole Chicken Tacos are made with my favorite shortcut 20-minute mole sauce, and they are full of the best rich and zesty flavors!  Feel free to swap roasted cauliflower for the chicken to make them vegetarian/vegan if you prefer.



  • 1 batch holy mole sauce
  • 4 cups (about 2 pounds) diced or shredded cooked chicken
  • 810 small flour or corn tortillas
  • 2 avocados, diced
  • 2 fresh limes, cut into wedges
  • toppings: chopped fresh cilantro, diced red or white onions, sliced radishes, and/or crumbled cotija cheese


  1. Cook the mole sauce. Prepare the mole sauce according to recipe instructions.
  2. Toss the chicken. Once the mole sauce is ready to go, reserve 1 cup of the sauce to the side for later.  Then add the remainder of the sauce to a large mixing bowl with the chicken, and toss the chicken until it is evenly coated.
  3. Assemble the tacos.  Fill the tortillas with a generous scoop of the chicken, drizzle with a spoonful of extra mole sauce, top with avocado, a squeeze of fresh lime juice, and whatever other toppings sound good to you.
  4. Serve.  Then serve and enjoy while the tacos are warm!
