I would totally print out that picture, write the date on the back, and put it in his memory box or suchlike. It's a keeper.

hi mrs.mc,
just dropped by to drop this off:
Chicken Mole
4 Chickens (or equivalent, my family likes thighs)
1/2 Cup Vegetable Oil
3/4 Cup Flour (white, but use whatever kind you prefer)
2 Tbs. Gebhart Original Eagle Brand Chili Powder
1 Onion
8 cloves Garlic
1 Tbs. Kitchen Bouquet Gravy Starter
1 Tbs. Salt

Remove Skin and Boil Chicken with onion cut in two halves, 8 garlic cloves and salt.
(Note: "Skinless" chicken has not worked very well, balls up too much during boiling)
When done, let cool then remove meat from bones and set aside.
In large stockpot, heat oil and add flour stirring constantly until medium brown and thick consistency (i.e. thick gravy).
Mix chili powder in 4 cups chicken broth and add to flour mixture stirring constantly to remove any clumps. More broth may be added as needed for desired thickness.
Add Kitchen Bouquet. Let full mixture come to full boil.
Add chicken. Let simmer for 10 - 20 minutes.

Serves 8 to 10 persons, or 4 BigHeavies.
BigHeavy likes to serve over white rice and eaten with toasted tortillas.
