"My wife and I came up with this recipe on a whim. It has since become one of our family's favorite recipes. I feel I must warn you though, once you make this for your family you will likely be making it again and again. Enjoy! Whatever green peppers you decide to use, make sure they are at least 6 inches long and 3 inches wide.

1 1/2 pounds
skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1 (1.25 ounce) package
taco seasoning mix
Anaheim chile peppers
hot chili powder
1/2 (1 ounce) square
bittersweet chocolate, chopped
shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1 (8 ounce) package
cream cheese, softened
chopped fresh cilantro
This was fantastic - the taste of the sauce was incredible. The only issue I had was that the sauce did not thicken up past a watery consistency for me. I had to use 2 tbsp of corn starch mixed with 2 tbsp of water, stirred in slowly, to get it to thicken up. Just a heads up that you may want to have some corn starch on hand before you make this!
Peppers were very spicy. Would use Monterey Jack instead of pepper jack next time.
Alright, I totally played around with this recipe which is most likely great on it's own. My rendition: I braised chicken in chicken stock with my own mixture of hispanic seasonings (added brasing liquid to sauce). I used Poblano chili peppers, although I roast em, then remove seeds/skins. Also, I omitted the crm cheese & used Pepper jack cheese in chicken filling mix. Instead of using all that chili powder in sauce; I used 1tblsp + 1 tblsp of cumin and a small can of salsa verde. Only used 2C of chicken stock as sauce quantity seemed excessive. I had dry cocoa powder so used 1/4 tsp of that. Used immersion blender to puree the sauce after it simmered for awhile. My twist - stuffed peppers & then wrapped in softened corn tortillas. I baked in oven like enchiladas (lightly sauced with Chihauhau cheese on top. OMG, I mean, OMG! Cool way to overhaul your typical chicken enchiladas if you want to try it. Sorry for messing with the original post but...I wanted to play with this one.
Just great! Easy to make and hard to forget, you will want this again and again. The peppers I found were about 6 inches and that would have made 6 rather than the stated 4 peppers. The recipe makes quite a bit of sauce so if you also find smaller peppers I would half the sauce. And that sauce!!! Just delicious. Next time I will cut down the pepper a little as I used red chili pepper and I could tell my guests thought it a little too hot. One other thing, I found the recipe a little confusing about the amount of chocolate, but I used 2 squares of Ghiradelli b/s choc which was 1 ounce and it was absolutely perfect. Will make this again soon, thanks for a wonderul addition to the Mexican collection, Kevin!
Loved all the flavors. Fresh and lighter than restaurant food. Made a ton of sauce! Surprised how mild the Anaheims are...smokey flavor with a little kick. Served with refried beans with meltled cheddar cheese. Yum!!
I only had green bell peppers that needed to be used, but all of the rest of the ingredients. I cooked some rice, mixed it with a little bit of the mole sauce recipe, tossed with the chicken and cheeses, stuffed the peppers. Baked, then poured the sauce over top. Served with black beans. MMM
Outstanding! I never in a million years would have thought I could make authentic Mexican, but it turned out really good. I was reluctant to add the chocolate, so I tried it without first. Let me tell you, the chocolate makes the sauce. It does not taste like chocolate, just authentic mole sauce. I will use this recipe again. The flavors blended beautifully with spanish rice and cheese dip and chips.
Kids loved the chicken and peppers. Enchilada sauce was time consuming and not necessary. Easy directions to follow.

Pile it into a tomato half, load it into a wrap, or spread it on bread. Chicken salad does it all.
Broccoli salad makes a great side dish or a light main dish on a warm night.
