Let's Make It
Cook chiles in large skillet on medium heat 4 min. or until lightly toasted, stirring occasionally. Place in medium bowl. Add boiling water; cover. Let stand 15 min. or until peppers are softened. Meanwhile, cook sesame seed and seasonings in same skillet 1 min. or until lightly toasted, stirring frequently.
Drain chiles; reserving 1/2 cup of the soaking liquid. Place chiles in blender with sesame seed mixture and next 8 ingredients. Blend until smooth. Strain puree; discard strained pulp.
Heat oil in large skillet. Add strained sauce; cook on medium heat 5 min., stirring occasionally. Add chocolate; cook 1 min. or until chocolate is melted, stirring frequently. If needed, stir in reserved chile soaking liquid, 2 Tbsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached.
Serve over chicken with hot cooked rice or beans to round out the meal.
How to Sweeten a Bitter Pepper Sauce
If sauce is too bitter for your taste, add 1 Tbsp. sugar, a little at a time, just until bitterness is gone.
Ancho chiles are dried poblano peppers. You can use other dried chiles to replace some of the ancho or pasilla chiles (totaling 3 oz.), such as mulatto chiles and/or dried chipotle chiles.
