2 Tablespoons coconut oil
3 jalapeños, seeded

3 bunches green onions
1 garlic clove
1 Tablespoon cumin
2 Tablespoons dried cilantro

In a small food processor, blend the jalapeños. If you like a hotter chili, leave the seeds in, but you can reduce the number of seeds to suit your taste. Chop green onions and sauté with blended jalapeño and chopped garlic in coconut oil for 3 to 5 minutes. Add ground turkey and turkey sausage and brown. In a food processor, blend tomatillos. Add tomatillos and all spices; simmer for 45 minutes.

Mix green mole in 1 cup of boiling water until dissolved. Add mole and pinto beans, simmer for 30 minutes. Serve with sour cream or crème fraîche.
