I would have to agree with the other 3 star review. With all the seasoning that went into this, it was rather bland. Wasn't bad, but don't see why I would ever choose this recipe over a basic pot roast except for the fact that the veggies were different. I suppose this could be jazzed up with some jalapeno. I didn't even taste the cocoa.

With the amount of burrito seasoning and cocoa powder, I expected the result to have more of a jazzy taste. While this recipe isn't bland, it didn't excite me enough to want to make it again. It's good but not good enough for an encore.
