Chicken Mole Burritos

The secret ingredient in mole sauce is cocoa. This sauce walks the line between sweet and spicy, and does it by pairing cocoa and espresso powder with cumin and chili powder. They all dance together beautifully to make a sauce that comes together quickly and easily. Mix in some chicken, sprinkle your tortillas with your favorite toppings and dinner is served!
