My Mom's Mole

Food & Drink|Caterers & Personal Chefs


My Mom’s Mole launched in 2013 with a focus on sustaining traditional Mexican cuisine using responsibly sourced ingredients. You can find our award-winning mole in select specialty grocery stores on the central coast of California (also available online). Along with providing catering, we also have many events throughout the year such as pop ups and festivals.

We like to call mole the Mexican version of a curry. Our varieties are savory, complex, versatile, and authentic. Many people associate mole with chocolate, but the truth is mole comes in many colors and variations.

In retail and wholesale, our traditional mole is available as a powder (we have two other varieties we serve at events and provide for catering). You can simply add it as a spice for a marinade or simmer it with your favorite stock to make mole sauce. It is easy to incorporate into a variety of dishes. Our signature mole powder is vegetarian and vegan-friendly!

Why We're Green

We believe it's important to practice what you preach. We have worked hard to make our business practices (both while cooking and at our office) as environmentally friendly as possible. We got rid of single-use plastics and use only compostable foodware now for several years. We also permit customers to use their own reusable containers when possible. We want to do our part to reduce waste. The greatest challenge in getting certified was in determining what changes in purchasing decisions needed to be made, but once we overcame that the process moved quickly. We are proud to be green certified.
