Warm 2 cups chicken broth. Blacken Chili’s whole. You can blacken chili’s on the grill or on a gas stove. After you blacken chili’s, place in a bowl and cover with saran wrap. Let steam for 15-25 min. Unwrap, you should be able to whip off the black on the peppers. If you have an electric stove you can blacken the chili’s in a pan. Place all the chili’s in a pan, no oil. Turn on to medium; stir consistently until they get some color. Cut off tops of pepper and place in blender. Add 2 cups warmed chicken broth.
Toast bread crumbs in a dry pan over medium heat, stirring constantly, until lightly browned, about 3 minutes. Transfer to the blender with chicken broth and chili’s. Allow the chili’s and toasted bread and tortillas to soak, fully submerged, in the chicken broth until softened, about 10 minutes. Blend the mixture until smooth.
Cook tomatoes and tomatillos in pan on medium. Heat until soft and blackened. Place tomatoes in the blender with the chili broth mix.
Melt butter add onion and garlic and sauté until translucent. Add peanuts, cumin seeds, thyme, cinnamon sticks, cloves, and allspice berries; cook and stir about 5 to 8 minutes. Remove the cinnamon sticks and other whole spices; add onion mixture to the blender with the chili-tomato mixture and blend until smooth.
Pour chili puree into a large saucepan over medium heat. Stir in chocolate, remainder of the chicken broth, sugar, and salt. Bring mixture to a simmer; stir until chocolate is melted and sauce is thickened and slightly reduced, 10 to 15 minutes. Serve over chicken and rice.
