    One 32-ounce container (4 cups) chicken stock
    3 ancho chiles, stemmed and seeded
    1 tablespoon vegetable oil
    4 slices lean, smoky bacon, chopped
    2 pounds ground chicken
    1 large yellow onion, finely chopped
    4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
    Salt and pepper
    2 tablespoons tomato paste
    One 14.5-once can diced fire-roasted tomatoes
    2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
    2 tablespoons sweet smoked paprika for mild mole, or chili powder, for spicy mole
    1 tablespoon ground coriander
    1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    2 cups shredded or crumbled extra-sharp white cheddar cheese, for topping
    Sour cream, for topping

1.In a large saucepan, bring the chicken stock and ancho chiles to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer until the anchos are softened, about 10 minutes. Using a food processor, puree the anchos and stock.

2.While the chiles are working, in a large dutch oven or soup pot, heat the oil over medium-high heat until smoking. Add the bacon and cook until crisp, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the turkey and cook over high heat, breaking it up with a spoon, until browned, about 8 minutes. Lower the heat, add the yellow onion and garlic and cook until softened, about 5 minutes; season with pepper. Stir in the tomato paste for 1 minute.

3.Pour the ancho stock into the chili. Stir in the tomatoes, cocoa, paprika, coriander and cinnamon and simmer for a few minutes; season with salt if necessary. Serve in bowls and top with the cheese, sour cream, red onion and cilantro.
