2. Slow Cooker Chicken Mole | 289 Calories

Rave Review: “A dark, rich, complex flavored mole recipe. I generally shred the chicken so it will soak up the mole sauce and serve it with warmed tortillas. Tailor it to your own level of hotness and/or cocoa/peanut flavor. Mole is a sauce that has a lot of variations.” — ELAINE05
