for roasted, ground chiles.)

To blender, add almonds, banana, cinammon, garlic, tortillas, sesame seeds,
pine nuts and 1 cup of the chicken broth. Whirl until pureed. (Sauce will
be grainy.)

polblano always includes its signature ingredient: chocolate. A green mole,
made with tomatillos, is also declicious with chicken.
