I would suggest going with the almonds instead of the pumpkin seeds. I used the pumpkin seed option, and there were very hard "shell" like bits in the sauce that were unpleasant and got stuck in our teeth. Next time I make this I will definitely use almonds. Otherwise, this tasted very good. I used 2 fresh jalapeño peppers because I happened to have them on hand, and didn't have any canned. It was a good amount of spice.

Form me, this recipe was too bitter and lacked flavor. If I make it again, I will add more sugar or raisins, add cayenne, add salt, and possibly reduce the amount of cocoa.

Loved, loved, loved it! I made it exactly as written, except I used chicken breasts only. Also, my canned jalapenos were sliced, so I had to estimate how many slices made two whole peppers. I used about 1/4 cup, and that was just the right amount of heat for us. I only wish I'd doubled the recipe! We'll be having this often; thanks for posting!
