  • 1 10-ounce bag tortilla chips (unflavored)
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup tomato sauce
  • 4 ounces Mexican chocolate, such as Ibarra
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar, packed
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 teaspoons fresh garlic, minced
  • ½ teaspoon cumin, ground

  • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF.

  5. When sauce thickens, turn off heat and remove from the stove.
