For the Pork

For the Mole BBQ


  1. For the sauce. Add the olive oil to a warm sauce pan with onions, garlic and Cocoa & Ancho Spice Blend. Cook until translucent. Add the tomatoes, chipotle in adobo with sauce from the can, and ketchup. Cook through. Add vinegar and Salt and Pepper to taste. Remove from heat.
  2. On a plate, season the pork with Calicutts Cocoa and Ancho Spice Blend.
  3. In a large Dutch oven or skillet, add the oil and cook the sliced bell peppers until charred. Remove the peppers from the pot and keep the pot over med-high heat. Add the pork and sear on all sides. Remove from heat.
  4. Add Mole BBQ, pork, and peppers to slow-cooker. Cover cook on low for 8-10 hours, until the pork is fall-apart tender. Remove the pork to a cutting board and shred with two forks. Add the shredded pork back into the sauce in the pot.
  5. Assemble your taco. Fresh sliced jalapeños and chopped cilantro are a favorite!
