  • Step 1

    Begin by rehydrating the ancho and chipotle chillies. Do so by covering them in boiling water and leaving for 15 minutes.

  • Step 2

    Meanwhile in a pan on a medium heat add the olive oil and white onion. Cook for a few minutes before adding the garlic, oregano, cumin and tomato puree.

  • Step 3

    Combine and then add the cacao powder, vegetable stock and salt. Leave to simmer on a low heat.

  • Step 4

    At the same time heat two separate pans on a medium heat with a teaspoon of olive oil each. Add the sliced peppers to one, and black beans to the other.

  • Step 5

    Drain the chillies and carefully slice them open removing the seeds. Dice them up and place them into the pan.

  • Step 6

    Simmer for a few minutes more and then pour the contents of the pan into the blender. Blend until smooth.

  • Step 7

    Pour back into the pan and keep on a low heat frequently stirring.

  • Step 8

    Assemble the tacos by adding some mole sauce, black beans, peppers,
    crumbled dairy free feta and fresh coriander. Squeeze over some fresh lime and enjoy!
