Heat a tablespoon of oil in a large skillet over medium heat add the garlic and cook for 1 minute, then add the cooked banana and stir with the garlic. Gradually add 1 cup of vegetable stock to the pan while stirring the mixture with a wooden spoon. Add enough liquid so that they are the consistency of mashed potatoes. Season the puree and remove it from the heat.
To assemble the molds, wrap the tortillas in a damp paper towel and microwave for 1 minute or until the tortillas are flexible enough to fold.
Fill each of the tortillas with 2 tablespoons of puree and fold them in half. Put a tablespoon of a mole in the bottom of the dishes where they are going to be served, place 4 filled tortillas on each plate and bathe them with the mole.
You can sprinkle sesame on top of the enmoladas as decoration.
