This recipe is one of three meals that are made with some of the same ingredients. Cook one or try cooking them as a “stack” of three to best utilize your time and ingredients. Start with Quick Mole Chili. After cooking that, you will be part-way toward two other meals in the stack, this one for Chocolate Chili Nachos and Stuffed Peppers with Honey-Garlic Green Peas.
