Mexican Recipe for World Tour 2006. I tasted in a friend's house a long time ago and I liked.

Yum. I served this with a simple salsa (tomato, corn, capsicum, spring onion & lemon juice) and corn tortillas. The flavours of the orange & chocolate dominate. Initially I thought the rum may have been too much but after cooking the strong rum flavour subsided. The finished dish is a little on the sweet side for me but the chili helps with that. The recipe didn't specify but I used a large red chili finely chopped to make the quantity needed. I have eaten this 2 days in succession and the flavour improved with age.
