4 servings (serving size: 2 turkey cutlets and about 1/3 cup sauce)

This recipe uses chipotle chile powder to create a mole, the flavorful Mexican sauce whose hallmark ingredient is chocolate. Usually served with poultry, mole recipes vary but generally include onions, chiles, and ground seeds.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine the first 3 ingredients. Sprinkle turkey with sesame seed mixture.

Step 2

Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add turkey; cook 3 minutes on each side or until browned. Remove from pan.

Step 3

Heat 1 teaspoon oil in pan. Add onion; sauté 5 minutes or until tender. Stir in chipotle powder and cumin; sauté 30 seconds. Stir in broth, cocoa, and tomatoes. Return turkey to pan; bring to a boil. Partially cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes or until turkey is tender and sauce is slightly thickened.

Too hot and I mean really HOT and I'm from Texas! Next time I'll reduce the chili-powder; as it was to spicy/hot after the first bite. Good receipe; husband and son loved it. Tasty and easy to make; I will make again however with less chili powder.
