During this season of the year, we all start preparing for Thanksgiving dinner, so I decided to share this delicious turkey in mole poblano, which is really delicious but also easy to make. If you don’t have time to prepare the mole poblano from scratch, you can just use canned mole as a base and then add a few other ingredients. Happy Thanksgiving!
