3. Place the peanut butter and chopped chocolate in the jar of blender with half of the sauce. Blend, then gradually add the remaining warm sauce, scraping down the sides of the blender as needed until the sauce is smooth. Store in a covered container in the refrigerator for no longer than 1 week.

4. For sandwiches: In a large bowl, combine the shredded cabbage, lettuce, grapes and green onions. Set aside or chill until ready to use.

5. On each tortilla, spread ¼ cup of the Quick Mole Sauce.

6. Arrange the turkey in a strip in the middle of the tortilla and dollop with three tablespoons of the Cilantro Lime Sour Cream.

7. Top with two cups of the cabbage, lettuce, grape and green onion salad and wrap tightly as a burrito. Serve immediately.
