 Ingredients List

  • 6 Mulato chiles
  • 6 Pasilla chiles
  • 8 lb Turkey, in pieces
  • 1 lb Pork loin, in 2" chunks
  • 4 tb Lard
  • 1/2 c Almonds
  • 1/2 c Peanuts
  • 1 Tortilla, coarsely chopped
  • 4 tb Sesame seeds
  • 1/8 ts Ground cloves
  • 1/4 ts Cinnamon
  • 1/2 ts Anise
  • 1 lb Tomatoes, seeded, chopped
  • 1 oz Unsweetened chocolate
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 1 ts Sugar


Prepare the chiles as described above in the recipe for Mole Poblano
Picante. Place the turkey and pork in a large kettle with enough salted
water to cover. Bring to a boil, and cook, covered, for 1 hour. Drain,
reserving the stock. Dry the turkey and pork pieces thoroughly with paper
towels. Heat the lard in a large, heavy skillet. Brown the turkey and pork
pieces, a few at a time; then transfer to a flameproof casserole. In the
electric blender, blend the almonds, peanuts, tortilla, 2 tbs of the sesame
seeds, cloves, cinnamon, anise, tomatoes, and the prepared chiles, and
reduce to a coarse puree.

Heat the lard remaining in the skillet, adding a little more if necessary,
and cook the mixture for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Add 2 cups of the
reserved stock, the chocolate, salt and pepper to taste, and sugar. Stir
until chocolate has melted. Pour the sauce over the turkey and pork in the
casserole; cover; and cook over very low heat for about 1 hour, taking care
not to let it burn. Sauce should be the consistency of heavy cream, so, if
necessary, thin with more stock. Sprinkle with remaining sesame seeds just
before serving.
