Braised Beef with Chilies and Mexican Chocolate

Making authentic Mexican mole is a labor of love. This recipe, though, captures some of flavors of mole negro and pairs them with a fork-tender pot roast. Tablets of Mexican chocolate flavored with sugar and spices usually are used for making Mexican hot chocolate; here we add some to the pot to enrich the sauce with rich, bittersweet notes. Look for Mexican chocolate sold in small hexagonal boxes; Ibarra and Abuelita are common brands. Serve the beef with warmed tortillas or rice.
