Heat oil in large, heavy skillet; add turkey & cook until browned on all

cooking broth. Lift turkey from broth (reserve broth); discard skin and
bones; tear meat (do not cut) into large chunks. Set aside. Soak chiles in
boiling water to cover until softened. Place chiles & soaking liquid (or
ground chile) in a blender or food processor. Add tomato, almonds, tortilla

cinnamon and cloves. Process until smooth. If using ground chile, add a
little hot water as needed. Pour mixture into reserved skillet. Cook over
low heat about 5 minutes, stirring constantly. If mixture seems dry, add a
bit of oil. Stir in chocolate and 1 cup turkey cooking broth. Stir until
chocolate is melted. Taste and adjust seasonings. Preheat oven to 350.
Butter a 2-quart baking dish and place turkey in it. Pour mole sauce evenly
over turkey. Cover and bake at least 1 hour or until turkey has absorbed
most of sauce; stir will after 30 minutes. To serve, sprinkle with
remaining 3 Teaspoons sesame seeds and encircle with lime wedges. Makes 4
