That would be me. My Mole Rice was so disappointing it made the very plain, dry, boneless chicken breast seem not so awful. Quite a few people on the website commented that this was a swell dish. There are either many many people with awful taste buds or I am way too picky. Though this does remind me of the time I made the pastries that even the squirrels would not eat.
I followed the recipe exactly. I toasted the spices and herbs. I chopped the chocolates. I added the minced garlic. It looked exactly like the picture. And it had absolutely no taste. No flavor. No essence of goodness. It was so bland it could not have been blander. And this was agreed to by Big Daddy. He did not say a word until I mentioned cardboard might have more flavor.
Now I have no interest in making the surprise and I bought all the ingredients. WTF, maybe I will feel better tomorrow.
So I am off the order The Price of Politics by Bob Woodward and then to watch the Elvis jewelry episode on Pawn Stars.
