    7th Annual Mole Throwdown

    At the 7th Annual Mole Throwdown, local chefs, individual community members, and restaurants will have the opportunity to compete for bragging rights and the title of “Best Mole in San Antonio.” Winners will be selected by popular vote.

    Live music, new works of art by over 40 local artists, and a wide variety of mole recipes available for tasting will create an atmosphere of celebration and cultural pride. Attire for the event will be “Dark chocolate and Decadent.”

    Mole is a traditional Mexican sauce of pre-Columbian origin, which comes in a variety of colors and flavors, and can require dozens of ingredients to prepare - including ground spices, chilies, chocolate, and much more. A mole prepared from scratch can easily require a full day of preparation.

    Mole is an important part of Mexican and Mexican-American culture, often prepared for celebrations such as weddings, anniversaries and quinceañeras. Many families have passed down their mole recipes for generations.

    Centro Cultural Aztlan was founded in 1977, and has been serving our community for 38 years with their mission of preserving, developing and promoting Chicano and Latino art and culture.
