Wandering through Trader Joe’s, wondering what I was going to make for dinner—this is actually not an uncommon occurrence. I saw a package of pre-cooked pork carnitas. I could do a quick pork taco with that, but I make tacos almost every week. Walking down another aisle, I saw Trader Joe’s enchilada sauce, and it clicked—pork enchiladas!

Jan had brought some ghost chili products back from a trip to Monterey. As a result, I was doing a Cal-Mex cuisine Sunday dinner. I did not want the usual beans and rice, so I decided to make enchiladas.

I wanted to do something a little different with my refried beans. Sunday’s Parade Magazine had an article on ways to make your beans a little different. Adding chocolate seemed like a perfectly Mexican thing to do, but I have never seen a refried bean recipe that included it.
