  Chocolate Mole, Courtesy of my wife, Sara.
  Cover all the chilies and soak for 30 minutes. Reserve 1/3 cup (3 fl
  oz/80 ml) of the soaking water. Stem and seed the chilies
  In a medium skillet, heat 1 tblspn of the lard over medium heat. Fry
  the chilies for 30 seconds on each side. Remove the chilies from the
  skillet and add the sesame seeds; stir until toasted lightly, about 1
  minute. Remove the sesame seeds from the skillet and set aside. Add 1
  tblspn of lard to the skillet and, when hot, add the tortilla strips;
  fry until soft, about 2 minutes.
  Place the chilies, sesame seeds, tortilla strips and reserved soaking
  water in a blender and puree to a paste; set aside.
  In a large skillet, heat the remaining 2 tblspns lard over med-high
  heat; saute the onions until translucent, about 3 minutes. Add the
  tomatoes and cilantro and cook for 2 minutes. Add the bay leaf,
  cinnamon, pepper, salt, cloves, cumin, cayenne and oregano and cook,
  stirring, for 2 minutes, or until well blended. Add the chopped
  chocolate and continue cooking and stirring until the chocolate is
  melted, about 2 minutes. Add the chicken stock and cashews and bring
  to a boil. Add the pureed chili mixture and stir well. Lower the heat
  and simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally, for 15-20 minutes, or
  until the mixture thickens and the flavors have blended. Serve with
  grilled pork tenderloin, duck breasts, chicken or turkey.
  Makes about 3 cups (24 fl oz/750 ml)
  Of course, it is beneficial if you are sipping a Texas Tornado while
  preparing above. (don't tell my wife I said that!)
