Texas Food Blogger Loves Larry's Mole Sauce

Larry's Southwestern Sauces

Darragh Castillo of the Port Arthur, TX, News writes,

Larry’s Southwestern Sauces
Down in Groves, Larry’s means crawfish. This other Larry in Austin is getting famous for all-natural Mexican cooking sauces for artisan tacos, burritos, enchiladas, chicken and more.
I tried the mole sauce with eggs for breakfast, though it’s designed to pour over meat and bake for an hour.
Serve that with rice, corn or tortillas.
My simple egg mole was appreciated for nuanced flavor so early in the morning.
The Chipotle and Ranchero jars are also vegan and gluten-free and good for very quick accomplishments.  

Summon your friends and get the fiesta going.

What People are Saying about Larry's Sauces -

LOVE this sauce!!
This sauce is full of flavor, and can be used in so many recipes!
— Suzanne, La Place, Louisiana

Excellent sauce - highly recommended!              
The Ranchero sauce has a bite to it without being heavily spicy and made my turkey meatballs into something fantastic. There are many uses for this sauce and all of them delicious. If you want to make any chili, I would imagine this would be a great starter sauce and cut down on the time to make the chili dramatically.
— Racquel, Forest Hills, New York

I can't live without Larry's sauces!
Best find ever! Excellent.
— Sonja          


Good flavor
I used this in the slow cooker with pork tenderloin and it was great. I like my mole with a little more kick than this so I added cayenne, chipotle and chili powder.

Slow Cooker Beef Mole

Slow Cooker Beef Mole
Slow Cooker Beef Mole is one of the most delicious recipes I have developed in a long time. I mixed the  stewing beef with Larry's Mole Sauce, set the slow cooker and went out. When I returned the house was filled with the most heady aroma of chocolate, chiles and beef. And the taste was just as nice. In this case I made a side order of yellow zucchini squash and white rice.
Another plus for the recipe is that you can make  beef mole tacos with any leftovers. But if you want leftovers, you might want to double the recipe.

2 pounds stewing beef, cut into one inch cubes
1/2 teaspoon each salt and black pepper
1 16 oz jar of Larry's Mole Sauce 
1 cup white of brown rice
Water to cover by one inch
1 teaspoon vegetable cooking oil
2 cups chopped yellow zucchini squash

  1. Season the beef  with the salt and pepper. Place it in the slow cooker.
  2. Pour one jar of Larry's Mole Sauce over the beef and stir to blend.
  3. Cover the slow cooker and set it to cook for 6 or more hours. 
  4. Make the rice according to package instructions.
  5. Saute the squash in the oil over medium heat until just cooked. 
  6. Spoon the beef mole, the rice and squash onto plates and serve.
Serves 4.

Slow Cooker Chipotle Chicken

Slow Cooker Chipotle Chicken is an easy way for you to prepare a deeply delicious meal with a slightly smoky spiciness. I always use thighs, legs or wings for this dish because I think the breast tends to dry out in the slow cooker. Serve this all-natural treat with some brown or white rice and squash or corn for a great Mexican meal.

2 pounds boneless chicken thighs
1 teaspoon each salt and pepper
1 16oz. jar of Larry's Southwestern Chipotle Sauce

Place the chicken thighs on a cutting board and season with the salt and pepper. Place them in a slow cooker.
Pour Larry's Chipotle Sauce over the poultry and stir to blend well.
Set the slow cooker to 4, 6 or 8 hours based on your schedule. Recipe will come out the same for any cooking time.
When the poultry is cooked, make the rice and vegetables according to package instructions.
Place a scoop of rice in a bowl, cover with the Chipotle Chicken and sauce, and scoop a serving of vegetables in on the side. 

Serves 4.

Migas Texican Omelette
Migas Texican Omelette

I first ate migas at a diner/restaurant in downtown Austin after a great night listening to country music at the Armadillo World Headquarters. Then again in Austin after a great night dancing at the Broken Spoke.

4 eggs, stirred
1/2 cup grated cheddar, cotija or Monterrey Jack cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons minced cilantro, as garnish
2 wedges lime

  2. Add the tortilla chips and cook for two minutes over medium heat.
  3. Add the Larry's Ranchero Sauce and cook for one minute.
  4. Add the eggs and cook one minute.
  5. Add the cheese, salt and pepper and cook another minute, stirring until the eggs are scrambled.
