The cocoa in this dish imparts a richness and mysterious nuance. Peanut butter replaces the usual ground nuts.

This was very good. I made it pretty much as listed except that I added more red pepper, because we like things spicier. It did get a bit thick at the end, so next time I might add more water or tomato sauce, but everyone liked it, and it is definitely going on my list of go-to healthy meals.
