Preparation
1
Preheat oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit.
2
Combine Nestlé Abuelita Authentic Mexican Style Hot Chocolate Mix, onion, garlic, beef base, tomato paste, dried cherries, chipotle in adobo, oregano, paprika, and hot water in blender.
3
Blend until smooth and set aside.
4
Heat canola oil in a large dutch oven over medium high heat. Season beef ribs with salt and pepper.
5
Working in two batches, sear beef on all sides for about two minutes. Transfer them to a plate.
6
When all the beef is seared, add them back to the dutch oven, covering them with the mole sauce, apple cider vinegar, and wine.
7
Braise the beef in the oven for about 2-2 1/2 hours, or until the short ribs are tender and have fallen off the bone.
8
Remove ribs from sauce and discard the bones and fat. Shred the meat into a bowl, adding sauce and mixing thoroughly.
9
To assemble tacos, lay out 3 grilled tortillas, spoon 2.5oz (1/4 cup) of meat and sauce onto each tortilla, and serve with a wedge of lime.
10
Garnish with toppings such as: pickled red onion, cilantro sprigs, avocado crema, or thinly sliced radishes.
