Mole Bbq Chicken

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by WaterMelon

Simple and quick - can be done on the grill or in the oven. I imagine it will be great in the crokpot too.

I thought this was really easy and quite tasty, although I changed it a little. I used 6 tbl cocoa because it didn't have enough of that "mole" taste, 2 1/2 tsp chili powder. I also added 1/2 cup milk to make the texture a little more creamy. Very yummy wrapped in tortillas!
