“This is a delicious recipe I got from Michelle Urvater of Food Network. Something very different from our regular fare, that we really enjoy! I don't always use plain AND smoked chicken -- but often use all plain. The smoked chicken does add a special touch to this dish, however.”

  1. Saute the onions and garlic in the oil for about 10 minutes until tender.
  2. Add the tomatoes, chicken broth and green chiles and simmer, uncovered, for 15 minutes, stirring frequently.
  3. Meanwhile, in a dry iron skillet toast the sesame seeds and peanuts for a few minutes or until they begin to smell roasted; then add the cinnamon, cloves, cumin, oregano and chile powder and toast for just a few seconds.
  4. Remove and cool slightly, and then puree in a food processor or blender with the raisins to form a paste.
  5. Add the"plain" chicken to the sauce and simmer 3 minutes to cook through; then add the smoked chicken and simmer another 3 minutes to warm through.
  6. Add the chocolate and simmer a minute until melted.
  7. Stir in the paste and simmer until thickened.
  8. Meanwhile, warm the tortillas in the oven.
