Calabacitas In Mole Adobo


  • 1 cup corn kernels
  • 2 bell peppers, coarsely chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 summer squash, cubed
  • 2 tomatoes, quartered
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tablespoon mole adobo (or mole pipian for a less spicy version)
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1/2 to 1 cup vegetable or chicken stock


Sauté onion, corn, bell peppers and mole powder in oil until onions are tender. Add remaining ingredients. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes.

Serve with tortillas or on a bed of rice.

Note: meat eaters can add ¼ pound pork sausage to this dish. Just add it at with the onions and mole powder and sauté it until the meat is cooked before adding the remaining ingredients.
