Appetite for reduction: Black beans in Red velvet Mole

 I love the to me a bit complex flavours of this mole. It's sweet, spicy, heavy and chocolaty with a hint of cinnamon. It looks like a thick chocolate sauce and tastes like nothing else. It feels like you're eating something unique, even though it's really easy to make! I served it over basmati rice, steamed carrots and spinach, and although it's good, I miss something that's a bit more fresh and... acidic? I'm pretty sure a fresh salsa of some sort would make this meal more complete and not quite as heavy. How do you like to serve your mole?
