Milk Allergic/Sensitive Recipe: Easy Mexican Mole

I served this meat mixture on tortillas one day (and I didn’t miss the cheese but I would have loved some avocado!) and the next day I put it over pasta and it was just as good. It’s a little on the spicy side if you add the extra red pepper, but I liked it that way.  This creation was another clean out the refrigerator/cabinets before I go grocery shopping success :-p
