This is a variation on the classic mole sauce. It is an even larger variation on guacamole, since the gauc was made with ginger juice instead of the usual Mexican style seasoning. The mole on the chicken is dark chocolate and espresso thickened with a bit of chipotle and ground cashews. The garnish on the chicken is a basic Pico de Gallo sauce (salsa), and those are homemade chips in the ginger avocado spread.
