Mole Turkey Wings

Author: Canadian Living

Rich and nutty with hints of spices and dark chocolate, this simplified version of the
Mexican sauce called mole uses easily available ingredients. Turkey wings are often
sold with tips removed and already split. Toss some rice with chopped fresh
coriander or green onion and serve as a bed for this classic.
