Wine or Beer to go with Mole Poblano?
I love making Mole Poblano, the wonderful classical Mexican chile/chocolate dish, when I can, which isn't terribly often. (I live in Denmark, and the chile scene here is depressing.)
And yet, I have NEVER worked out what kind of wine or beer would go best with this dish. Does anyone have any good suggestions?
I've toyed with porter, and some red wines, but without too much success. I'm an enjoyer though not a connoisseur of either wine or beer. And I KNOW I won't be able to get advice from my local wine merchants on this one. I'm very grateful for any ideas!
