Default Dried chili proportions in mole

Hello,

I have many dried guajillo chilis, about 5-6oz, one dried ancho, and
about 3oz of dried pasillas. I have made Mole Paste #1 (from The Mole
Page) twice, but it calls for mostly ancho chilis, which I cannot get
on short notice because I am in Japan.

Can I make mole with just the above peppers? If so, in what
proportion?

Also, can the mole be served as a sauce on the side in case of the
presence of extremely picky people at my dinner party?

Linda

Pasillas are often used along with anchos, so using them will be no
problem. I have never tried mole with guajillos. They are a good bit
hotter than anchos, so you might want to go easy with them if heat is
an issue.

Yes. I have done this. It works OK,
