This Mole Coloradito Casamiento with Roasted Delicata Squash is the perfect fusion of traditional Salvadoran and Mexican cuisines. Casamiento, meaning "marriage" in Spanish, traditionally combines rice and beans and is a staple in Salvadoran cuisine. This version enhances the classic with our rich, complex and everyone's favorite mole coloradito, lending depth to the beans and rice. The roasted delicata squash, tossed in mole and olive oil, adds a caramelized sweetness that complements the savory base. Finished with crumbled queso fresco (or feta), roasted pepitas, and fresh parsley, this dish is the ideal marriage of flavors and textures, celebrating the culinary traditions of both Central America and Mexico.
Wrap yourself in your comfiest of blankets and get ready to enjoy your next favorite fall soup. Our Guelaguetza Mole Negro starter forms the backbone of this dish, enriched by the earthy tones of mixed mushrooms and a hint of apple cider vinegar for acidity. The blend of cumin, coriander, and garlic adds a warm, aromatic complexity, while Ayocote Primary Beans contribute a creamy texture, harmoniously marrying with the velvety mole.
Trust us when we say that after a taste of our mole, you are going to want to pour it over everything. (Our starters also make the world's best enchilada sauce.. provecho!)
