“Mole” tacos!

Tacos! After seeing one of my coworkers post pictures of tacos on Facebook (it’s kind of his thing), I got to craving them myself.  I don’t like using spice mixes for things like this, so I just threw in spices until I was happy with the flavor.

I decided to add some chocolate to the mix, and man was I happy with that experiment!  It gave the taco meat a nice, rich flavor.

Once again, I failed to copy down any measurements for my recipe, but I basically added about 2 tbsp chili powder and somewhere around 1/2 tsp of cumin, salt, crushed red pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder to ~2 pounds of browned and drained ground beef.  I then added what I thought was way too much unsweetened cocoa powder (I wasn’t careful enough about tipping some out of the container, and probably got several tbsp in there), but it turned out to be perfect.

My husband and I layered refried beans, taco meat, lightly sauteed red peppers, diced tomatoes, and shredded habanero cheddar cheese in our taco shells.  NOM!
