Thank you to the Pablove foundation

for donating food, and to all friends who helped prepare this recipe for 60 at Los Angeles’ Ronald McDonald House on Dec. 18th:

Begin by heating a few drizzles of grape-seed oil in a medium sized pot.  Add an onion, chopped, and cook it some (til it twinkles).

Toss into the pot: 3 or 4 pieces of chopped garlic, 3 T. chili powder, 3 T. cacao, 1 t. cinnamon,  and 1/8 t.- 1/4t. clove (ground).

Cook a couple minutes, then, add:

2-3 c. veggie broth

1 can of drained, diced tomatoes

1/4 c. raisins

2 T. peanut or almond butter, and 1 T. tahini paste.

Allow sauce to simmer over medium-low heat for about 20 minutes, then blend.

Season the sauce to taste with salt.  Add either veggies, like green beans, squash, and chopped bell peppers, or, browned pieces of chicken or turkey.  Allow another 20-30 minutes of simmering to fully cook the goodies.

Serve over rice, with cilantro and sour cream.
