Mole is basically a condiment. You can buy it at walmart in the latino foods or at latino markets. It's better if you make it yourself. You can google recipes.

I don't know if I use stuff that American moms don't use. I just know that I season differently. I like to use cabbage, onions, squash, zucchini, cilantro, radish, carrots, baby onions (they are great when grilled), tomatillo, many herbs that I don't know how to translate to English lol. And many more veggies.
