   Heat oil in a large, heavy-bottomed saute pan and
   brown turkey on all sides. Remove turkey and set
   aside. Add onion to pan and saute until lightly
   browned. Add garlic, sesame seeds, cinnamon, cloves,
   coriander, ground chile and chopped cilantro; cook
   over moderate heat for 5 minutes. Add stock and simmer
   for IO minutes, stirring occasionally.
   Pour mixture into a blender or food processor. Add
   peanut butter, tomato paste, raisins and chocolate and
   process until smooth. Return sauce to pan, add
   reserved turkey and simmer, covered, until tender,
   about 35 minutes. Thin with stock as necessary. Season
   with salt and pepper.
   Arrange turkey on a warm platter. Whisk sauce until
   smooth and pour over turkey. Garnish with red pepper
   strips, warm tortillas and fresh cilantro sprigs.
