From "American Game Cooking," by John Ask and Sid Goldstein.

Heat oil in a large, heavy-bottomed saute pan and brown turkey on all
sides. Remove turkey and set aside. Add onion to pan and saute until
lightly browned. Add garlic, sesame seeds, cinnamon, cloves, coriander,
ground chile and chopped cilantro; cook over moderate heat for 5 minutes.
Add stock and simmer for IO minutes, stirring occasionally.

Pour mixture into a blender or food processor. Add peanut butter, tomato
paste, raisins and chocolate and process until smooth. Return sauce to pan,
add reserved turkey and simmer, covered, until tender, about 35 minutes.
Thin with stock as necessary. Season with salt and pepper.

Arrange turkey on a warm platter. Whisk sauce until smooth and pour over
turkey. Garnish with red pepper strips, warm tortillas and fresh cilantro
