Chef Akhtar Nawab of New York City's Choza Taqueria makes a simple mole from charred tomatillos, serrano chiles and garlic laced with smoky cumin, cinnamon and clove. The real game changer, however, is the addition of roasted pistachios.
Tomatillos, tomatillos, tomatillos. They are EVERYWHERE and still coming on strong. I wanted something new, besides my ubiquitous salsa verde. Add in some Bulgarian carrot chiles, and this smokin' sauce is what came out.
