Instructions Checklist
  • In a large heavy skillet, heat the oil over medium high heat until hot, then stir in the on-ion, garlic, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden, about 6 minutes. Stir in the chicken, peanut butter, soy sauce, cocoa pow-der and chili powder, and cook until the chicken is cooked and the liquid is slightly thick-ened, about 5 minutes. Season the filling with salt and pepper to taste. Reserve 1/2 cup of the mole sauce.

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Divide the filling between the tortillas. Roll each tortilla into a cylinder and place, side-by-side in a baking dish. Pour the reserved mole sauce over the tortillas.

  • Bake the enchiladas until the filling is hot and the cheese is melted, about 10 minutes. Sprinkle with the cilantro and serve.
