Mesero Will Make You Re-Think Tex Mex

mr meseroby Steven Doyle

For the life of Mico Rodriguez he has done nothing more than try to please us all. Early on in his career you know he was responsible for bringing us what is now the behemoth M Crowds restaurant group which own Mi Cocina et al. A bout with alcoholism took this company away from him and left his to his own devices and went about to correcting this portion of his storied life.

A Guide To Dallas Mole Sauce

Mole originated in Mexico, but that is about all some will agree on. The exact origin was perhaps Puebla, Oaxaca, but other states are known for their delicious moles with chile peppers as the common ingredient. The classic moles of central Mexico and Oaxaca, such as mole poblano and mole negro typically include ancho, pasilla and chipotle peppers.     Continue reading
