Adapted from a recipe on another site when I needed a quick sauce for Costco tamales.

- Sautee onions and garlic in oil over medium heat until soft. (onion amount may vary from 1/4 to 1/2 cup).
- Add cocoa and cumin and stir over heat until fragrant, about a minute.
- Add tomato sauce and drained chilies and simmer for about 10 minutes. (amount and type of chilies may vary according to how spicy you like your sauce.).
