Chicken Mole Potato Skins for Cinco de Mayo #SundaySupper

We are celebrating Cinco de Mayo on #SundaySupper today!! Ole!! I loooooove Mexican food, can’t get enough!! We were all at a small Mexican store just a couple of weeks ago as Ken was hunting for some jarred whole jalapeno peppers. We bought lots of wonderful meals and items. One of them was a jar of mole sauce or paste. I had no idea what I would make with it at all. Then I looked at this week’s event and it is Mexican!! I started to think about that jar of mole, pictured it with chicken but then what to do with it. For some reason potato skins popped into my head but I didn’t want them deep fried but healthier, so here is my recipe for Chicken Mole Potato Skins. They turned out to be absolutely fabulous. Something I will for sure make again and again. A new found Mexican treat!! We all loved them so much!! Plus the homemade salsa went perfectly!!! Enjoy this week’s recipes and may they take you to a little sunny spot in beautiful Mexico!!
