  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C.

Mole Spice Mix:

  1. In a bowl mix all ingredients to get a uniform seasoning mix.

Mole Broccoli And Cauliflower:

  1. Chop broccoli and cauliflower into small florets and cut the harder stems into 1 cm sized chunks.

  2. Add them to a big bowl and sprinkle with mole spice mix and olive oil. Toss around to coat them evenly with seasoning.

  3. Move them to a lined baking tray and bake for about 10 minutes or until tender.

Pickled Radishes:

  1. Slice radishes thinly. Add them to a bowl and sprinkle with salt. Massage them vigorously for a minute or two, so they start releasing water. Leave them to rest for another minute, then pour away the excess water. Add vinegar to the radishes and set aside.

Avocado Sauce:

  1. Mix all ingredients in a food processor until smooth. Add more water if necessary.


  1. Fill the tortillas with broccoli and cauliflower, add pickled radishes, avocado sauce, peanuts, cilantro and chopped chillies.
