Milk Allergic/Sensitive Recipe: Easy Mexican Mole

I served this meat mixture on tortillas one day (and I didn't miss the cheese but I would have loved some avocado!) and the next day I put it over pasta and it was just as good. It's a little on the spicy side if you add the extra red pepper, but I liked it that way.  This creation was another clean out the refrigerator/cabinets before I go grocery shopping success :-p

Easy Mexican Mole

Ingredients
  • 1-2 lb ground beef
  • 1 onion, chopped finely
  • Taco Seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 1 15 oz can corn
  • 1 (or more) bell peppers, sliced
Directions
  1. Brown ground beef with onion.
  2. Add spices, cocoa powder, salsa, and corn.  Bring to a boil and then turn down to a simmer.
  3. Toss in bell pepper slices and simmer until liquid is absorbed.
  4. Serve on tortillas or with pasta or even with corn chips.

I was in need of something quick and easy the other night, so I made this. Very yummy! We did have some homemade guac and the avacado did make it even more delicious!

I shared your blog with a friend who recently had to go dairy-free to bf her son. Thanks so much for posting all these great recipes that she can use! It's been a blessing to her.

I'm so glad it was yummy. I usually just estimate what I put in it after I make something so I'm glad to hear it came out alright!
