Heat oil over medium heat and fry the quesadillas. Place on absorbent paper to remove excess fat and reserve.
For the mole, heat the chicken broth, add the mole pasta, the table chocolate and cook for 15 minutes without stopping the stirring until it has a smooth consistency. Adjust the seasoning to taste
Place a mirror base of mole on a plate, add the quesadillas and soak to the middle, garnish with cream, cheese and oregano leaves.


On a base of Mole like a mirror, decorated cream, cheese and oregano.


Due to the amount of sugar in the banana, the dough may be a little sticky, oil your hands to be able to handle it well. Cook the mole over low heat, continuing to stir to avoid sticking. Completely remove the broth from the pot of beans, so that when cooking them, do not suffer from a reaction to the oil.
