   My object isn’t an object it’s food and it’s called Mole (mo-l-eh) , Mole comes from Mexico. It’s usually made on special occasions like Cinco de Mayo, birthdays, and religious reasons. Many people make mole, but it’s mostly know in Mexico . There are two recipes to make mole, but the one everyone knows is mole poblano. The other one is just plain old spicy .
INGREDIENTS TO MAKE MOLE POBLANO 
1 dried pasilla chile, seeded and chopped (reserve the seeds) 2 chipotles in adobo, seeded and chopped 1 cup cooked black beans 1 ounce dark chocolate, coarsely chopped 1/3 cup almonds, toasted 1 teaspoon kosher salt 2 cups chicken stock 2 tablespoons olive oil 1 clove garlic, peeled and crushed  2 shallots, peeled and coarsely chopped (about 1/3 cup I choose to write about mole because one it’s my favorite type of food. I mostly choose this because mole was the very first type of Mexican food I ever tried . This taught teaches about my Mexican heritage .
 My grandma who taught her how to make mole. When I eat it reminds me of her. This just so you know in my opinion spicy mole is better, but not everyone likes spicy food.
