Holy Moly was this good! Had such depth of flavor in such a short amount of time. Hubby adds Tabasco Chiptle to his for even more kick!

I loved this recipe. So fast and so flavorful. I used store bought mole sauce because I think it is a little bit more complex than just the spices listed here. That does require more stirring upon addition because it is a paste. I even took the leftovers and ground them up in a food processor to make a wonderful bean dip for tortilla chips today. will make again.
