2 hrs 45 mins
Galley Wench's Note:
Ready, Set, Cook! Reynolds Wrap Contest Entry! A new twist to a Southwestern favorite. The dark cocoa adds a complex 'mole' flavor to the dish. Can be prepared on the stovetop or in crockpot. Time indicated is for stove top preparation. The photos are of the taco salad that I made the next day with the leftovers . . . YUM!
