OMG!!! I almost didn't try this recipe after reading the reviews saying things like this is for a sophisticated palette only, or this is a far cry from the tomato-base you're used to, but none of the tomato-based sauces had quite the same reviews, so I came back to this one. SO GLAD I DID. HOLY SMOKES this stuff is amazing. I kept spooning some out of the pan to taste it because it was so amazing. It reminds me of the enchiladas I used to eat at this truly authentic Mexican eatery (not the Americanized one most of us are used to). There is such depth of flavor. I'm sure some kitchen enthusiasts would cringe at this, but I didn't have any semisweet chocolate left so I sprinkled in a bit of cocoa powder instead. I also didn't want it to be too spicy for my 3-year-old, so I cut down a bit on the chili powder and tripled the cumin. I just tossed together some ground beef, green pepper, and spices for the insides but the sauce truly made the enchiladas. My picky toddler gobbled this stuff up, as did my picky grown-up neighbor. DELICIOUS! You won't regret this one. It's not your traditional tomato base, true, but so much better.
