Turkey with Peanut Molé



8 Whole ancho chile pods

3/4 c olive oil blend, divided

2 yellow onions, diced

2 tbsp garlic, peeled

2 lbs Roma tomatoes

17 oz chipotle chilies in adobo

4 c blanched roasted peanuts

1/4 tsp allspice

2 tsp cinnamon

4 c panko breading

4-6 c TURKEY STOCK, divided

1/4 c red wine vinegar


24 10-inch Southwest Chile tortillas

4-1/2 lbs cooked green rice

4-1/2 lbs cooked black beans, drained

24 oz tomatoes, diced

12 oz green onions, sliced

24 oz guacamole

24 oz sour cream

24 oz salsa cruda




Remove stems and seeds from ancho chilies. Toast on griddle or flat-top 5-10 seconds on each side, pressing down with an offset spatula. Take care not to burn the chilies. Place in a bowl and cover with hot water. Let soak for 30 minutes until soft; drain.

Heat 1/4 cup olive oil blend in a saute pan, add onions and garlic and saute until lightly caramelized.

Roast the Roma tomatoes on a charbroiler or under a salamander until the skin is blackened, cool slightly and remove charred bits.

In a food processor, add drained chilies, onion and garlic mix, tomatoes, chipotle chilies, peanuts, allspice, cinnamon, panko breading, vinegar and 2 cups of turkey stock. Puree, scraping sides and adding more stock as necessary to insure a smooth mix.

Heat the remaining 1/2 cup olive oil blend in a heavy bottomed pot, add mole and cook on high 4 to 5 minutes to bring out the flavors. Reduce the heat, thin with remaining stock to a cream sauce consistency, add diced turkey and simmer 20-30 minutes until turkey is cooked through and flavors have mellowed.


For each order: steam 1 tortilla, layer 3-ounces each of rice, beans, turkey molé, 1-ounce tomatoes and 1/2-ounce green onions.

Roll wrap and top with 1-ounce each of guacamole, sour cream and salsa cruda. Garnish plate with tri-colored chips.
