"Chichilo" is one of Oaxaca's 7 famous "mole" sauces, and is made with chilhuacle and guajillo chili ash, tortillas, and flowers. This mole is not at all sweet like the others. The beef cheek is cooked sous vide, making it incredibly tender. Also added to it are "esquites"—corn cooked in chicken broth with wormseed and chile de árbol pepper, mixed with beans that have also been pre-cooked with wormseed. The dagger is made from candied sapodilla. Finally, it is decorated with orange tortilla powder painted with annatto.
