- Add tomatoes, raisins, chipotle peppers, chicken broth, beer, peanut butter, sugar and salt. Bring to a simmer and cook 20 minutes, stirring often.
- Pour the sauce into a blender or food processor and add chocolate. Cover and blend until smooth.
- Transfer the chicken into the dutch oven, or a deep heavy cooking pot, or skillet. Pour sauce over chicken. Cover and simmer for about 45 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through.
- Serve warm over cooked white rice with warm tortillas. Garnish with a dollop of sour cream and sprinkle with fresh cilantro, if desired.
- You will have lots of sauce left-over. Drizzle extra sauce over rice and chicken. The sauce can be frozen and served with chicken later on.
