  Transfer to blender. Puree mixture in blender until smooth, adding
  some of the chicken broth. Pour into Dutch oven.Toast tortillas 2 to
  3 minutes, until lightly browned in both sides; tear into small
  pieces and set aside.
  4. Reduce heat to medium. Add oil to skillet. Add onion and cook 3
  minutes. Add garlic and almonds and cook 2 minutes more. Transfer to
  blender. Add soaked chiles and their liquid, raisins and sherry and
  tortillas; puree until smooth. Add to Dutch oven with roasted tomato
  mixture, remaining broth and salt. Bring to boil; reduce heat and
  simmer partially covered, stirring occasionally, 30 minutes. Stir in
  chocolate until melted. Makes 5 cups. (Can be made ahead. Cover and
  refrigerate up to one week.)
  5. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Heat a large skillet over
