Servings 3 cups


  • 3 C green sauce
  • 1 to 2 TBSP unsweetened dark chocolate cubed or powder
  • For dessert topping only: 2 TBSP honey or other sweetener to taste


  • Heat green sauce on medium.
  • If using dark chocolate powder, slowly add into green sauce and stir in completely.
    If using dark chocolate cube, stir often until completely melted in sauce.
    Chocolate Enchiladas


This sauce works best if larger chunks in the green sauce are blended completely, especially if you want to use it as a dessert topping. If you like your regular green sauce chunky, be sure to blend or strain chunks out of the sweet version. I set aside a small amount to sweeten and left the rest plain for other dishes. Serve or store in an airtight container and refrigerate.
Serving Suggestions
Serve over beef enchiladas. Use in chili or as a condiment. Top ice cream, chocolate cakes and other sweet desserts calling for a chocolate topping. Add to chocolate brownie or cake recipes.
